Farmington NM Clean-up

We are planning our third annual clean-up in Choke Cherry Canyon, for Saturday September 5th starting at 8am and lasting until noon. We are currently working with the local BLM (Bill Papich) and they are providing gloves, shovels, rakes, buckets, dumpsters, trash bags, porta potties, and everything necessary except trucks and people...Including lunch (sponsor to be named later)after all is said and done! The area is amazing for wheeling, but is unfortunately destroyed by trash dumping and misuse.
The BLM has once again called upon us as 'wheelers, bikers, hikers, ATV users, and anyone else who enjoys the canyon, to unite in order to help maintain and PRESERVE the area for recreation.
Anyone who can attend and offer a hand is strongly encouraged to.

This is an opportunity to get active in preserving our right to 'wheel and to show that we do take care of the land we use for the sport we love so much, so make some time and help support our efforts to keep trails open!!!!!

After we are done taking care of business everyone is free to hit the trails of their choice. Most of us that are attending will be there from Fri Sept. 4th to Sun Sept 6th. We will make sure a dumpster is left at the mouth of the canyon the whole weekend..So please, while you are enjoying the trails grab a trash bag or two (provided by the BLM) and pick up whatever trash you see on, or on the way, to the trails. The cleanup is only a few hours long, but that does'nt mean we can't go out of our way all weekend (and every time we 'wheel) to keep the area clean.

Please come out and join us and help support a great OHV are, as well as our sport!

If you have any questions please ask here or feel free to PM me. If you plan on attending please let me know here or via PM so that we know how many people we need to feed after the cleanup.

Thank you for the support in advance!

Description:
Chokecherry canyon is a very unique place in that buggies, very modified,
slightly modified, and stock trucks can run the same trail and everyone
will have fun; optional lines is what makes chokecherry amazing. Don’t
want to do an obstacle? Go around. Can’t make an obstacle? Try another
30 feet over. This area really is a huge playground for any type of
vehicle.
The cleanup is going to be Saturday, but if people wanted to come out
early, to get the most out of the wheeling trip, by all means come out
early and we can show you around. Last year’s cleanup lasted about 4-5
hours, which left a lot of time to go wheeling afterwards. Sunday you can
go wheeling as well if you feel so inclined.

Meeting time will be 8:00am-noonish Saturday Morning at the staging area
(directions below). We will be splitting up in groups to hit different
areas that need to be cleaned up, which will be announced at staging on Sat morning.. After the cleanup, we will all gather
around and decide what trails to run and what trails everyone wants to do.

Staging will be located at the entrance to chokecherry canyon, which is at
the intersection of pinion hills and glade rd. (a large dumpster will be
there).

Map of staging location:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...29011&t=p&z=15


Direction to Camp:
From Pinion Hills Rd.
Turn off on CR1980 aka Glade Rd (chokecherry canyon)
There has never been a sign or anything to mark it whatsoever. But there
are land marks.
* It's a canyon bottom at the base of a pretty big hill.
* it's on the right (north) and paved
* It immediately curves to right and becomes gravel/dirt
* there are street lights if it's dark.
* there is large wash on the right (east)
Stay on the main road. At ~+2miles you'll pass the "Glade run rec
area/BLM" sign
You will then cross over the wash, then cross back after a ways.
2 TOTAL WASH CROSSINGS
After the 2nd crossing you'll come to a fairly large, well used "T"
intersection on the left.
PASS IT!
Take the next trail that peels off to the left. It's just a few yards past
the intersection.
You'll pop out in brown spring. Which is kind of like a parking lot
surrounded by a big slick rock bowl. That's were we'll be camped.
Total distance is ~3 miles from pinon hills

I will get the word out to the City of Farmington people and see if we can get an "official" memo sent via inter city means.

Not sure if I will have my big truck, but I have a trailer just in case.

See ya there!

Absolutely!! Thanks for your help on spreading the word!! I'll check their board to see how many folks are going to attend every now and again to make sure we have enough food for everyone... It would help if they posted here as well

No money/donations needed, the Degenerate wheelers and the BLM are taking care of everything. What we really need is people (that will actually commit) and trucks! Save your money for the trip, get your truck done, and actually make it this year

I'm so proud *sniff* you finally learned to turn off caps lock

Yeah no kidin', that little stunt they pulled with the backhoe in the wash almost screwed all of us We'll have flyers sent out to every kind of recreational store/shop in the area to make sure everyone hears about it..

It was'nt a roll per si.....More like a tuble backwards I'll see you and the rest of the klan out there man!

Dumpster at the main entrance of the Glade

Why can't they also put a large dumpster at the entrance of the Glade for the Summer? Do you have a contact at the City or Waste Management?

Waste management is a business, they aren't going to put a dumpster for free out there for the whole summer. Really they would be losing money, and nobody would use it except during these cleanups....

Number for waste management Customer Service 505-327-6284

They would n't be loosing money, they would incure some cost by transporting the dumpster. They have plenty of these dumpsters in their yard.

Have you actually try to get info on this or are you just Surrendering. I thought that maybe someone had already worked on this issue.

If everyone was like you then nothing would ever get done.
