Mid Valley Unit logo Backcountry Horsemen of California is a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving backcountry wilderness, protecting stock users' historic use of the wilderness and educating the public about gentle, "Leave No Trace" wilderness use. We are a 501(c)3 organization, which means donations to BCHC Mid Valley are tax-deductible. The Mid Valley Unit is based in Modesto. See our Links page for our neighbors and the state web site.

Here's what we'll be doing in the next few months. See our Activities page for pictures of recent activities.
