December 12th Collaborative Cleanup A Success
On Saturday, Dec 12, 2015 we held a cleanup sponsored by Friends of Redington Pass and Tread Lightly!. We had a great turnout of 50 volunteers despite the poor weather conditions. Our volunteers represented various recreational groups including AZFJ, BSA, FRP, SAHC, and TRS plus our key agency partners from USFS - Santa Catalina Ranger District, and the AZ Game & Fish Dept.

Kirk Emerson (FRP) kicked off the event, Mindi Lehew (USFS) led the safety briefing and Ken Hester (FRP, TL!, & AZFJ) explained the cleanup plan, divided the volunteers into groups and assigned them cleanup areas. The AZGFD team supplied a dumpster on wheels and we helped them replace their vandalized Information Kiosk sign. Ty Wildman and his team from Barnett Towing did a great job removing a burned out minivan from an OHV trail and they will return when the weather is better to remove the remaining two wrecks in the Pass. As we were finishing up, a hail & freezing rain storm had us all scrambling for cover. We had a quick raffle and departed knowing we made Redington Pass nicer for all users despite the uncooperative weather. A BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers, sponsors and donors, and agency partners who helped out!

Collaborative Area Management Plan

UPDATE: The Collaborative Area Management Plan (CAMP) process for Redington Pass is continuing this fall. Four working groups are on track to make recommendations on Recreational Target Shooting, Recreational Access, Highly used Areas, and Conflicts among Users. The Integration Group will be reviewing the working groups' draft recommendations in the new year and hopes to present a set of recommendations at a community meeting mid-winter.
