The charity we are supporting with any donations above the cleanup costs is Tread Lightly. We'll have tons of Tread Lightly materials, stickers and flyers!

Even though Tread Lightly is this years benefiting Charity there will be some great local charity's at this years cleanup including:
TRAL is a local group that specifically cares for and works with the Mesa Ranger District. (Which includes the Four Peaks Area.)

Karmaracer: Which you may remember from last years cleanup will be a part of this years event. Luis Aclivar, this charities founder and leader, works tirelessly to teach kids and those less fortunate to find a new purpose in cycling. From teaching kids how to work on their bikes to making sure any kid who wants to race is fully outfitted. Karmaracer will be on site to give information and spread the word.

Disabled Explorers, which you may also remember from last year or many other places will be handling all the medical services at the cleanup. Lance, DE's front man, is a highly capable RN and will be in full effect with his new Sportsmobile truck!

Visit to Four Peaks area.

Well yesterday, November 19th, I visited Four Peaks to see how it looked. For the first time I can actually say, its not as bad! We're making headway.
After the first two years some volunteers were a bit disheartened to see the area looking almost as bad as it did just one year earlier.
This year I can actually tell that MOST of the areas we've cleaned are much better off than they were last year.

That being said, by expanding the cleanup area we will have plenty of work ahead of us for 2010. One way or another we'll eventually clean the whole forest. ;)

Here are some of the worst areas this year.

Some groups to thank for working hard to keep these areas open are on this sign. When I was more actively riding dirt bikes I belonged to the Rock Stars. All great groups of folks who work hard.
