Love it and Leave it Clean Day!
This event is hosted by Friends of the Central Cascades Wilderness and your local Wilderness Rangers. We will divide up into teams of no more than 11, then each team will hike with a Ranger on a different trail. Four Wilderness Rangers are attending including our Lead Wilderness Ranger, talked to them today and they are excited! We will clean fire rings, pick up garbage, clean up campsites along with other tasks. No experience required. There will be a brief safety talk and volunteer agreements will need to be signed before heading out. We will be doing trails off Cascade Lakes Hwy. Trails include Green Lakes, Moraine Lake, Lucky Lake and Six Lakes. The most physically fit need to go in the Green Lakes group. Those short on time and energy would be best at Lucky Lake. Bring your 10 essentials, water, lunch and layers. Work gloves or plastic gloves would be great otherwise everything else will be provided. No dogs please. This will be followed by optional food and drink in town at Deschutes Brewery. We have prizes too. If you need to leave early that may also be possible to arrange. Thanks for your help, let's leave the trails looking good for spring. Spread the word, you don't have to be an Adventurer to attend. Bring a Friend! We need as many volunteers as possible.
Encouraging biking, walking, carpooling or parking at Ray's if Safeway lot is full. Looks to be a dry sunny day!
