Cleaning up Southern California's premiere technical canyon ... awesome! Cleaning up Southern California's premiere technical canyon that we no longer have access to ... awesome AND noble! This event was put into motion before the discovery of the closure. It is the hope of the local canyoneering community that moving forward with this clean-up will show the Angeles National Forest that we care about stewardship of their resources, regardless of access. We also hope that this won't be forgotten during the 'proposal to re-open' phase of negotiations. --Klaus Gerhart--
"Please help clean up graffiti and trash from Eaton Canyon. It is a MESS. The Coalition of American Canyoneers (CAC) in conjunction with the Angeles National Forest is having a canyon cleanup event. We will boldly remove trash and graffiti from the lower third of the technical canyon to the Pinecrest Bridge! The event will be held on Saturday, August 23, 2014. We need at least 25 people to assist. More participants would be merrier. There are various tasks to be performed, just to name a few: rigging ropes, hauling sand/mud, operating communications, scene safety, hauling water, chipping and scraping paint, raising gear above waterfalls. Come have fun, get dirty, play with all the gear and toys and make a difference. Enjoy the company of others who feel the same way you do. CAC will buy the pizza at a get together afterward.
Please email your intent to attend at [masked] or call Sonny Lawrence at 909 DOT 255 DOT 6036. If you are unable to attend, please
donate money to the cause. And of course while you are at join CAC. It’s free." --Sonny Lawrence--
Feel free to show your participation in this event by an RSVP on Canyoneering California (here), but you must also send Sonny a message of your intentions at [masked] so that he may keep you informed of the details, and delegate you to your best usefulness in this endeavor.
