Frye Canyon Cleanup and Graffiti Removal Report • May 21, 2016
On Saturday May 21st, the Coalition of American Canyoneers arranged a massive cleanup project at Frye Canyon in Southern Arizona. Kailee Littrell with the Coronado Forest Service was very excited about our project and arranged for two other groups to join the CAC in this effort: Southeastern Arizona Clean and Beautiful (SEACAB) out of Graham County and Gila Watershed Partnership (GWP) working with the BLM.
About twenty CAC members and volunteers from Arizona, Colorado, and California came out to help in the effort. CAC’s new Portable Pressure Washer was used for the second time and performed flawlessly. The obnoxious graffiti at the canyon exit was erased as well as the graffiti at the far end of the Frye Mesa Dam. A heaping truck full of trash including over 1000′ of black piping was picked up and removed from the area around the reservoir, the canyon exit, and the canyon mid-entry/exit point.
A big thank you to everyone that helped out to support this great event.
