From Fresno Scout Office

From Hanford: 

Once you are on E. Fowler Ave. from either direction proceed to E. Saginaw Ave. Turn east (toward the mountains) on E. Saginaw and drive past the orchard on the right and turn right on the orchard road about 450 ft. from the corner.  It will be the first opportunity past the corner to turn right. Continue along the orchard road to the back of 12626 S. Fowler, we will have members there to direct you to a parking area for dropping off your candidate and equipment.  Using this back entrance also prevents having to open and close gates multiple times.
