Collaborative Cleanup A Success

On Saturday, Dec 12th 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.

Kirk 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!
