Blodgett Access Fund Volunteer Days

Access Fund comes to Blodgett: Come on down and help out!

The Jeep Conservation Team is the Access Fund's "on-the-road" team of climbing area stewards. They're traveling around the US, 10 months a year, assessing climbing area conservation and stewardship needs, working with locals to address these needs, training best management practices and motivating volunteers.

This time around the Conservation Team is in your area, working alongside the Bitterroot Climbers Coalition and the Montana Conservation Corps to work on a variety of improvements in Blodgett Canyon. The Conservation Team should be in our area now, having arrived Wednesday, August 22. They will be staying through Monday, August 27.

This is a great opportunity for western Montana climbers to partner with an outstanding organization. Please consider volunteering your time to help improve and protect one of our most significant local climbing resources.
