Volunteers are needed for Joshua Tree National Park social trail restoration and climber trail access improvements at the Steve Canyon climbing area, Saturday May 15th, 8 am - noon. Meet at Intersection Rock, look for bright yellow nissan truck with a white camper shell. Park service provides tools, training and materials, we bring the fun.... Make a difference and show the park that climbers care about their impacts. Its easy and fun and a great chance to meet like minded people.

Please RSVP to John Durr through facebook, email or by phone see contact info at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=36991792547#!/group.php?gid=36991792547&v=wall

"If I were out there, I'd be there" bump....

Meanwhile, I haven't heard about the start of our trailwork for the season here at the Gunks...Maybe they crossed my name off the contact list!

Can't do it, but I'm really glad to hear it's being done. It's one of the things Dirka and I talked about needing to be done when Dirka and I were there over New Years.

Sounds like fun - maybe we should have done something like this last weekend. Anyway, is Bernadette coordinating the project?

Yeah a lot nicer to hear about things like this than the Park Service kicking someone out, fining, or arresting someone...

Bring your mug! Climbers Coffee will provide the caffeine to fuel you through the work project. Meet John and Bernadette at the Intersection Rock parking lot, the coffee will be there.

Must have spent all the taxpayer's money plugging that D$%m freeway through the park, and setting up those Walmart sized parking lots for the RV's...Ah the days when it was a dirt road going through there and we used to give the tool a run for his money to try and find us as we stayed through the winter there. When I found out they kicked my brother out on day 14 because his license plate was in their "Database" I knew that place was cooked...Let the L.A.liens have it, it will never be the same...

Joshua Tree National Park Resources Staff including the Climbing Ranger - Bernadette and Friends of Joshua Tree are hosting this project together to better define access and to repair long term damage to the desert caused by park visitors, mainly climbers, in the selected project area.

The excellent results of past projects can be seen at Hemingway Buttress, Hall of Horrors, Cyclops Rock and Echo Rock.

A couple of hours of people power is all that is required to create a positive and lasting legacy of stewardship. Create good karma, receive good karma.
