New to the Rockfest weekend is the Icicle Canyon Cleanup.
Originally a stand-alone event, the Leavenworth Mountain Association along with the Access Fund and the Washington Climbers Coalition, have moved this event to the Sunday of Rockfest. Don’t miss out on your chance to give back to this awe inspiring outdoor playground.
Join us at the Forestland Parking lot for the annual Icicle Canyon Cleanup, where outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are encouraged to take part in making our beloved Icicle Canyon a cleaner place. Participants will be dispersed to various parts of the canyon to pick up trash and debris.
What to Bring:
Pack gloves, water, snacks, warm layers and sunscreen so you are prepared for a variety of weather. LMA will provide garbage bags, maps of the area, beverages and a volunteer hotdog cookout afterwards.
Where to Meet:
Forestland parking lot
We’ll be awarding prizes for categories including the “oldest beer can”, “reusable gear” and “most unique” trash items.
The US Forest Service will be on site with their climbing ranger, wildlife biologist and botanist to lead a series of educational talks geared towards climbing in the area.
