Bonfire on the Bluff – New Date

JDCF invites you and your entire family to Casper Bluff Land & Water Reserve for Bonfire on the Bluff, a great outdoor adventure to see the preserve as never before. Candle-lit trails will lead to several bonfires where you can watch the beautiful sunset, sip hot chocolate, and listen for owls. Special musical guest, Lenny Hosey, will be strollin’ and strummin’ with his guitar joined by Bob Rivoire and his harmonica as an added bonus! If there is snow, bring your snowshoes and cross country skis. The hike is appropriate for all ages and abilities. $10/person for non-JDCF members. As a non-profit, JDCF receives no tax dollars to acquire or maintain our public preserves. Money raised will be used to support these special places that are open to the public at no charge.
