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 and learn.
