Yosemite Climbing Association 3rd
Annual Yosemite FaceliftSeptember 27-October 1, 2006
Help clean up Yosemite National Park!
For five days in this fall, the Yosemite Climbing Association
will once again sponsor a Yosemite-wide cleanup to benefit the park and help restore high use areas after the busy summer season. Our goal is an intensive cleaning of all areas in the park before the winter rains set in. This will include roadways, the river corridor, trails, parking areas, campgrounds, climbing areas, and lodging areas.
Meet in front of the Visitor Center between 8:00 am to 5:00 pm from September 27th to October 1st to pick up trash bags and litter sticks. Bring your trash back for weighing and sorting by 5:00 p.m. Signing in and weighing your collection at the end of the day helps us track our progress, reach the most area and create revenue for the Park.
Each participant receives a raffle ticket for every day they participate. Hundreds of prizes will be raffled off at a special reception for all participants on October 1st. The park entrance fee will be waived for Facelift participants. Free camping is available on a first come first served basis.
Last year, 600 participants last year donated 4,696 hours, collected 7,655 pounds of trash, and created $77,671.84 in revenue for Yosemite National Park. Thanks to their efforts, the 2005 Facelift was recognized with a conservation award from The Access Fund. Help us make the YCA Yosemite Facelift an even greater success this year.
