Trash Pick-up at Pipestone on Tuesday

Keep Pipestone Pretty Project

Project update:  Thanks to those who came out an joined us.  Our small group collected over 1140 pounds of cans, bottles and tin from the trails and roads in Pipestone!  Unfortunately we didn't get it all.  If you are out in Pipestone or anywhere hiking we hope you will take that extra moment to pick up little and recycle it where you can.  Our beautiful Valley just keeps getting prettier!  

Looking for a great way to give back to an area affected by the fires this summer? Join the Methow Trails Board and Staff on Tuesday, November 4th at 9am for a Keep Pipestone Pretty Project.

If you have been out to Pipestone Canyon since the fire you may have noticed that the area is rapidly returning with flowers blooming, grasses growing and wildlife roaming. However, with the barren landscape, trash that has accumulated over the years is very visable. Join Methow Trails as we tackle a garbage pick-up of the roads and trails of Pipestone Canyon.

Tuesday, November 4
Meet at 9am
Junction of Bear Creek Road and Lester Road- across the street from Rhys Court’s Sculputure Yard- right where the pavement ends on Bear Creek Road.
Bring your own gloves and water and food as needed.
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty with charcoal ash.
Bright clothing may also be preferred as hunting may be happening in the area.
Methow Trails will provide the trash bags.
Individuals will break into groups and walk sections of Pipestone picking up trash.
Project is only expected to last a couple of hours.
Thanks for joining our Keep Pipestone Pretty Project!
