North Idaho College Outdoor Pursuits is hosting an Access Fund Adopt-a-Crag event at Q’emiln Park in Post Falls on Sept. 11 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Participants will be cleaning and developing climbing sites, removing graffiti and maintaining trails. The Spokane Mountaineers will provide lunch for volunteers after the event.

Adopt-a-Crag, the Access Fund’s signature event, is a national commitment by the climbing community to natural resource stewardship and volunteerism. Activities often include litter clean-ups, visual impact mitigation, trail construction and restoration, erosion control, and wildlife monitoring. This year during the month of September, the Access Fund expects Adopt-a-Crag will produce trail restoration projects and crag clean-ups at over 100 climbing areas around the country. This is Access Fund’s 7th Annual Adopt-a-Crag, presented by sponsors Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), W.L. Gore, and Clif Bar.

The Access Fund, non-profit advocacy and conservation organization, is the nation’s largest climbers’ organization, representing over 1.6 million technical rock climbers and mountaineers nationwide. The Access Fund's mission is to keep climbing areas open and to conserve the climbing environment.

The organization works in cooperation with climbers, other recreational users, public land managers, and private landowners to promote the responsible use and sound management of climbing resources throughout the United States.
