The "Friends of Rimrock" will do it's third annual spring clean up on Sunday, May 22nd 2011, 10AM to 3PM (bring your lunch and whatever tools you have available).
Everybody is welcome to come out and help. "Friends of Rimrock" is a coalition of different outdoors and environmental groups. Some of our members are from: the Allegheny Defense Project, Allegheny Outdoor Adventure Group, the Tionesta Snowmobile Group, and Save Our Streams PA. And, we are joined by "regular people" who just want to help clean up Rimrock, which is undoubtedly the "Crown Jewel" of the Allegheny National Forest. It is the most advertised and most visited attraction in the ANF.
We will rake the leaves from the parking lots, the walking paths, the stairs, and the overlooks. We also clean out the drainage pipes and vents at the overlook decks and we pick up litter from the area. If you want to join us, bring your own tools (broom, rake, shovel and garbage bags) and wear good boots and gloves! After the clean up (or perhaps during) we will have a nice picnic lunch and a discussion of forest issues. You are welcome to join us even if it's just for the picnic!
We will meet at Rimrock in the second parking lot, at 10AM on Sunday May 22nd 2011. Bring your own food and drink if you plan to join us for lunch. Our clean-up may last until the mid afternoon or so. All like-minded individuals are welcome to join us (conservationists, environmentalists, and just plain caring individuals!)
