Coming Events at HCCP - Fall, 2018
On June 24 the Creek Fire went through the same area of the Preserve as the Clover
Fire did in 2014. It also reached closer to Clear Creek. We are thankful that fire
suppression efforts prevented our riparian habitat, our Pioneer Bridge, amphitheater
and toilet from burning. Because of the extent of the burned areas and the condition
of our trails after the fire fight we will not be leading hikes this fall. We will be doing
clean up and trail work on the Preserve on National Public Lands Day and would really
appreciate your help. We will also have a table at Coleman Fish Hatchery’s “Return of
the Salmon Festival” and would like to have you stop and say hello if you attend. We
look forward to scheduling spring hikes for your enjoyment!
September 29 (Sat.) 9 a.m. - “NATIONAL PUBLIC LANDS DAY CLEAN UP”
The BLM and Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve are sponsoring a National Public Lands Day
along the Lower Clear Creek Greenway. Volunteers are asked to help clean up and repair
damaged areas along the Greenway - including picking up trash, removing graffiti from rocks
and concrete, repairing hiking trails and broken signs, and invasive weed removal. On the
Preserve we will be working on trails damaged in the Creek Fire. Gloves and eye protection
will be provided. Volunteers should meet at the HCCP trailhead on Clear Creek Rd by 9 a.m.
A BBQ will follow the workday at 1 p.m. at the Horsetown amphitheater. For more information
and to sign up, call BLM at 530 224-2100.
October 13 (Sat.) 9 a.m. – “ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY CLEANUP”
Volunteers will clean up a stretch of Clear Creek Road around the Preserve for 2 – 3 hours.
We provide vests for visibility, tools to pick up small items and garbage bags. Please bring
gloves. Lunch/snacks on us afterwards . . . location to be determined.
