LMVA provides a variety of interpretive services during the summer, including campfire programs for children
and adults at area campgrounds. During a campfire program you might learn something about mountain history, including
depictions of mountain men, Imperial Valley farmers, a Kumeyaay Native American, or the first Ranger on the mountain.
Mountain wildlife crafts are also presented.
Other programs include
Hug-A-Tree, and Pine Cone Bird Feeders. LMVA volunteers also lead Nature Walks during the summer, providing interpretive
information regarding the forest flora and fauna. You can even create your own program!
