The Back Country Horsemen of America’s Shasta Trinity Unit and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Redding Field Office will co-sponsor a “leave no trace” horse camping clinic on April 1.

The clinic will begin at 9 a.m. next to the Bass Pond Trailhead in the Sacramento River Bend Area north of Red Bluff, California.
