UIAA Respect The Mountains Day
The ACC Nation wide is hosting a Respect The Mountains
day in partnership with MEC and the UIAA. The goal is to
promote LNT ethics, respect for trail use, and the wildlife in
the great places we all share.
Locally the Vancouver section will be hosting a information
tent and trail cleanup party up the Stawamus Chief hiking
trail in Squamish.
Members are encouraged to volunteer for the day and come
out to either provide info to people at the trailhead, or hike
up the chief to collect rubbish that is left behind.
‘Respects the Mountains’ will be an ACC annual event that
is a contributor to a larger, global initiative that was created
by the UIAA. We would love to see each section run a crag
clean-up (or clean-up elsewhere, if you prefer) in which
they can bring their local community together to contribute
to something bigger. In addition to a local area clean-up,
the event would also include an educational component,
potentially as a part of an after-party. For example,
geography of a local crag, First Nations history in the area,
or biology of a local plant that is especially sensitive to
climbers chalk! Each section will have ownership over their
event, so you have the chance to be as bold as you’d like
and steward it in a way that appeals most to your section.
This would be the largest geographic mountain/crag clean-
up in the world!
Because the sections are very separate geographically, this
is a huge opportunity to create unity across Canada and
represent The Alpine Club of Canada as one entity and to
make our pride of stewardship known. We are a club that is
passionate about the environment and the local areas that
we use so heavily and we want this event to make a
statement. Respect the Mountains allows us to put action to
our values and help sustain the areas in which we work, play
