The Los Alamos Mountaineers invite everyone to join them for a presentation by Kevin Stillman on the state of the Bandelier backcountry and trails post Las Conchas Fire.

Stillman is the trail work leader at Bandelier. He has worked at Bandelier for seven years and hiked and backpacked in Bandelier and the surrounding area for many years.

The presentation will follow a regular Mountaineers meeting and social time (7 p.m.) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 20 at the Los Alamos Nature Center.

There will be a slideshow and presentation about the Las Conchas Fire and the floods of 2011 and 2013, how the backcountry and trails were affected, and where Bandelier is rebuilding the trail system.
