Our spring training session is our annual opportunity to become "Patrol Certified". Whether a new or returning volunteer, this 2 day event will be conducted in cooperation with the South Platte and Clear Creek Ranger Districts. Training will be held at the Shawnee Community Center (formerly VFW) located in Shawnee, Colorado, approximately 5 miles south of Bailey on US Highway 285 with sleeping out at the USFS Field Station just across the street. All attendees will be encouraged to camp overnight at the Shawnee site. Food and beverages will be provided by FOMELC. Volunteers will need to provide their own transportation and camping gear.
