NIC's Outdoor Pursuits hosts Adopt a Crag Sept. 17

North Idaho College’s Outdoor Pursuits is hosting the Adopt a Crag climbing cleanup from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 17 at Q’emiln Park in Post Falls.

Projects for the day include trash removal, invasive weed control, trail maintenance, and general cleanup. This year the emphasis will be on improving access, trails, and belay areas in the Upper and Lower Fifth Canyon as well as connecting trails to the recent 250-acre addition to the southwest side of Q’emiln Park. There will be a barbecue lunch following the event and giveaways from local recreational outfitters.

This event is part of Access Fund’s Adopt a Crag, a nationwide program of natural resource stewardship and volunteerism that is free and open to the public. Adopt a Crag is organized nationally by The Access Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the climbing environment. This year, the Access Fund expects the Adopt a Crag program will conduct trail restoration projects and crag cleanups at over 150 climbing areas around the country.
