Please join us Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 9am at Timberline Lodge’s Salmon River parking lot for the 2nd annual Salmon River Canyon Cleanup. All participants except the Portland Mountain Rescue crew will head down canyon to put a serious dent in a spectacular mess. Bring gloves and be prepared for alpine weather contingencies. We will provide coffee, doughnuts, garbage bags and an after party, sponsored by Stone Brewing, at Charlie’s Mountain View in Govy.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
8:00am-9:00am Gather at Timberline’s Salmon River parking lot
9:30am-12:30(ish)pm give the Salmon River headwaters a good scrubbing

Thank you in advance to our partners and participants!

The weather didn’t cooperate but that didn’t dampen our spirits. The 1st Salmon River Canyon Cleanup on Mt. Hood was a success. Big thanks go out to The US Forest Service and the Zig Zag district crew, Timberline Lodge and employee Harold Cooley, The Portland Mountain Rescue Crew and their winch, Next Adventure, American Medical Response and the 40 or so volunteers who spent the better part of a damp Saturday cleaning up a large mess.
Friends & Mountain Folk,
Saturday, September 17. Timberline Lodge Salmon River Canyon parking lot aka the Climber’s Lot. 9:00am.
Save the date and arrive on time because we’re kicking off the inaugural Salmon River Canyon Cleanup on Mt. Hood. Here are some things you should know and bring:
1. This will not be like a walk in the park or on the beach. The terrain is challenging and the distance covered roughly one mile.
2. Pack your own lunch and plenty of water.
3. Be prepared for iffy if not rotten weather though of course we’re hoping for glorious sunshine.
4. Bring your own leather gloves. Leather is key as it’s not easily pierced by sharp metal objects.
5. Wear sturdy footwear with boots being the best bet.
6. Recyclable garbage bags will be provided.
If you plan to attend please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the names and number of participants. Space this year is limited to 50 adults. The 1st annual Salmon River Canyon Cleanup is a partnership between The US Forest Service, Timberline Lodge, Next Adventure, Snowrider Project PDX and the AMR Reach & Treat Team. We hope to see you Saturday, September 17th at 9am!
