With the support of Adopt-A-Highway we are organizing a community cleanup of the highway that crosses our Franklin Mountains.  Our purpose for organizing this event has many aspects.  We want to bring neighboring Adopt-A-Highway holders together as well as extend the invitation to those who live around the area, use its designated trails to bike, hike or walk, and others who care about our beautiful landmark. The mountains are home to countless wildlife, vegetation and provide us with an admirable landscape.  Many times we forget how vulnerable nature is, therefore we want to use this event to reminded us all of how important it is to care for our mountains.  We want to raise awareness and give the community an opportunity to give back.

So far we have gotten the following groups to join us in our efforts:

East El Paso Rotary Club
Border Patrol Explorers (Hondo Pass)
Creosote
Claudia Delgado
Friends & Family

The event will take place on January 19, 2019 from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.  We cordially invite the public, clubs and any organization to join us in our efforts and give back.

Everyone will meet at the top of Smuggler’s Pass on the Trans Mountain Road (Loop 375) at the Ron Coleman Trailhead.   We will provide trash bags.  Please wear gloves if you have them.
