12th Collaborative Cleanup A Success
On Saturday, Dec 12, 2015 we held a cleanup sponsored by Friends
of Redington Pass and Tread Lightly!. We had a great turnout of
50 volunteers despite the poor weather conditions. Our volunteers
represented various recreational groups including AZFJ, BSA, FRP,
SAHC, and TRS plus our key agency partners from USFS - Santa Catalina
Ranger District, and the AZ Game & Fish Dept.
Emerson (FRP) kicked off the event, Mindi Lehew (USFS) led the
safety briefing and Ken Hester (FRP, TL!, & AZFJ) explained
the cleanup plan, divided the volunteers into groups and assigned
them cleanup areas. The AZGFD team supplied a dumpster on wheels
and we helped them replace their vandalized Information Kiosk
sign. Ty Wildman and his team from Barnett Towing did a great
job removing a burned out minivan from an OHV trail and they will
return when the weather is better to remove the remaining two
wrecks in the Pass. As we were finishing up, a hail & freezing
rain storm had us all scrambling for cover. We had a quick raffle
and departed knowing we made Redington Pass nicer for all users
despite the uncooperative weather. A
BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers, sponsors
and donors, and agency partners who helped out!

Area Management Plan
Collaborative Area Management Plan (CAMP) process for Redington
Pass is continuing this fall. Four working groups are on track
to make recommendations on Recreational Target Shooting, Recreational
Access, Highly used Areas, and Conflicts among Users. The Integration
Group will be reviewing the working groups' draft recommendations
in the new year and hopes to present a set of recommendations
at a community meeting mid-winter.
