Whittaker Peak Micro-trash Clean Up with the Sierra Club


Location image of event venue


Sunday, November 20-Whittaker Peak Micro-trash Clean Up with the Sierra Club Time: 8-3 We will be met at the trail head by ANF Volunteer Co-ordinator Pete Johnston. He will open the gate so we can drive to the top of the mountain and spend all of our time cleaning up the micro-trash!!! Driving up you may see bear, deer, cougar, and smaller animals, and evidence of them like scat and tracks. You may even see a condor, as this is next to the Sespe Condor Preserve. Once we get to the peak, pick up some micro-trash that is on the peak, have lunch, and head down again. You will see the weather station that reports some of the most dramatic weather in California. Winds on this peak reached 94 MPH this last winter. After several hours of collecting bits of glass on the mountain top, we will head back down the mountain, back down the mountain. BRING: Bring water, snacks, gloves, towel/stool or garden chair to sit on, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, lunch, camera. Thank you for volunteering! DIRECTIONS: Take the I-5 NORTH to Templin Hwy. Exit. Turn LEFT. Go under the freeway, and turn right on Golden State Hwy. Follow this road for 3 miles until you see a brown sign on the left that says Whittaker Peak. Park on the RIGHT side of the road. We will meet here, then carpool to the trail head, leaving some cars at this point. When we hike back down the mountain, the cars that remained at this point will take us back to our cars at the trail head.
