NIC's Outdoor Pursuits encourages climbing community to give back

North Idaho College's Outdoor Pursuits in conjunction with the Kootenai Climbers and Spokane Mountaineers is encouraging the community to give back to their local climbing area by participating in Adopt-A-Crag climbing crag cleanup at Q'emiln Riverside Park in Post Falls Sept. 12. This event is part of Adopt-A-Crag Day, a nationwide day of improving, cleaning and celebrating local crags through volunteerism. Adopt-A-Crag is organized by the Access Fund, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the climbing environment. Volunteers are needed to cleanup trash and chalk as well as perform light duty trail work at Q'emiln Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will also include food and prizes for volunteers. A van will leave from the front of Edminster Student Union Building on NIC's main campus at 9:45 a.m. Sept. 12 to transport those interested in volunteering. The event is free and open to the community and is sponsored locally by NIC's Outdoor Pursuits and All About Sports. Information: (208) 769-7809.
