Just another day on the mighty Kern living the dream to conserve our river and forest.
Careful: Step by step Our footprints get marked We crouch and duck To avoid them thorns Aware of the surrounding Following the trail We dodge the blanket worm's touch The ant sprawl and the spider's trap Be careful if you venture out here Or for days you'll scratch. #forestinfocus #fortressexplorations #itchybitchy #spidernet #blanketworm #antbites #itch #trailcamera #trails #foresttrail #westernghats #lostinparadise #careful #natureisrelentless #nature_shooters #naturephotography #forestphotography

Did you know you CAN NOT burn glass bottles??? Please dispose of your trash properly. Always practice Leave No Trace. Every campsite on the Kern River has trash bins that are donated by private donors and local businesses for you to use so we can keep our public lands clean and open. Don’t be a turd bucket! 💩
Only one way to stay cool from these heat waves, the Kern River! We are half way through the week. Who’s planning on taking a dip in the mighty Kern this weekend??? 📸: @teamstamant

Beers and sunsets. Only way to finish off a long day on the river.
We’ve stumbled upon yet another dirty gremlin incident on the river. Someone thought they could outsmart us by hiding their empty beer cans between these two rocks. Bless their hearts. 🧐
Sometimes you just want to look at a river from 5500 feet above as it slithers through the gorge.
We want to thank the Southern Sierra Fly Fishers for their donation of proceeds raised at the CarpFest fly fishing tourney on Lake Isabella. Thank you to all who participated Carpfest and showed support to conserving and protecting the Kern River.
Great day on the Wild & Scenic Kern River today as we teamed up with our friends from @backcountryhuntersca and @ssffclub for a quick river cleanup on the North Fork. Pulled in about 20 bags of trash and passed out 50 to campers. We hope they use it to cleanup and pack out their garbage. Working together in partnership to keep our public lands open for all us to enjoy and experience.
The weekend is here and we would like to remind everyone to be sure you COMPLETELY put out your campfire when leaving camp, going to sleep or anytime no one is keeping an eye on it. Most forest fires are started by abandoned or unattended campfires like this one in the video. Remember, only you can prevent a forest fire - Smokey Bear 🎥: @leavenotracecenter
“The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It's not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” John Steinbeck . Throwback to a spring break adventure with my kids exploring Redwood National and State Parks — fairytale forests filled with an incredible stillness and beauty and zen. . . #redwoods #toweringgiants #fairytaleforest #forestadventure #amongthetrees #awakethesoul #forestinfocus #savethetrees #protectourparks #protectthewild #hikingadventures #optoutside #hikersparadise #amongthewild #neverstopexploring #naturelovers #getoutstayout #hikethewild #zenforest
So many years....so many days....so many memories are well preserved in every stem every leaf and evey tree of this forest under veil,unless one comes under their blissful shelter he won't understand the roots,the roots which leads to that aspired peace! #natureschild #naturephotography #nature #fog #forest #forestinfog #forestinfocus #beautifulnature #beautifulearth #pineforest #conifers #hill #hillstation #hilly #girlonthehill #gogirl #girlonthego #peaceofmind #peace #bliss #solitude #weedy #weed #instago #instagoodlife #instareaveler #instagirls #instatravelgirl #instatravelblog #instatravelblogger
I guess these people had a different idea of celebrating 4th of July on the Kern River. 100+ degrees and being swarmed by bees while picking up these assholes mess. I gave ZERO fucks and got it done!
Here, we found a very very “smart” camper that hid his trash instead of dispensing it in the provided trash bins just a few feet away. Some people really gets us scratching our heads like WTF were they thinking? Please use the dumpsters provided. Every campsite and day use site has a trash bin and you should have NO reason to act like a dumb ass gremlin!

Did you know it takes over 600 years for fishing line to decompose. Fishing line is one of the leading causes of death to wildlife in recreational areas who get tangled up. Last week we observed a hawk wrapped in fishing line and hanging upside down in a tree at Riverside Park. Unfortunately there were no resources available to rescue the hawk. No fire trucks or fish and wildlife with long ladders were able to help and the hawk was left to die. Let’s avoid this by practicing @leavenotracecenter and @packingitout to #keepkernclean
One of Sequoia National Forest's most popular destinations,Peppermint Falls and campgrounds 1-5 along Lloyds Meadow Rd have been closed due to reasons of trash, budget and public safety.

To take action and become a volunteer, please sign up and join us today! Sign up link in our bio.
