On the morning of Saturday November 7th, 2015, Eastern Washington Adventures Members and Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 met up at Beverly Dunes for the annual clean up. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) staff showed up early to greet the volunteers for the Beverly Dunes Clean Up as they signed in.
Around 10 AM, volunteers headed out to cleaned campfire pits, picked up trash within the campgrounds and picked up trash in the sand dune ORV riding area. Around 3 PM all the volunteers came back in and got a photo at the dumpster with the trash they picked up. Some already went into the dumpster earlier that day.
This event was a fun, thanks to all who came out to help. Here are some photos of the 2015 Beverly Dunes Clean Up & Camp Out:
On the Tuesday July 22nd, 2014 we met up at the Ahtanum Winter Recreation Trailhead for the Annual Eastern Washington Adventures Ahtanum State Forest Trail Maintenance, Clean-up & Camp Out. The rain came and cooled things down. We set up camp and had a good time around the campfire.
Wednesday morning the rain was coming down hard. We pulled the drain plugs on the JK, tighten up the bikini top and were ready to roll. Others were ready to go with their tops and doors. Around 10 AM we headed up Red Saddle Road for some Green Dot repair, trash removal and trail maintenance on Sedge Ridge.
We turned up the Sedge Ridge 4×4 Trail and started working. At Cultus Hole Vista we stopped for lunch. After lunch we worked our way down the South Fork then back up on the routed Boulder Trail. The rain stopped and it got warm. Once we topped Sedge Ridge we called it a day and headed back to camp.
Thursday we headed out around 10 AM going up the North Fork Ahtanum. It was a little cold and looked like rain father up the ridge we went. We started doing trail maintenance, Green Dot repair and trash clean-up as soon as we turned onto the Blue Lake Trail. At Blue Lake we took a quick photo and headed up 4W615 to Blue Slide Lookout for lunch. After lunch we headed down FS1024 and onto 4W613. We did some maintenance on 4W613 and took breaks at the view points. Once at Louie Way Gap 4W608, we headed back to camp by taking Nasty Creek Road out.
On Friday we headed out around 10 AM at worked on Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail and a few Green Dot roads. We came out off of McLane Canyon Road and headed down the North Fork, through camp and back on on Sedge Ridge to finish the maintenance on the east end of the ridge. We headed back to camp after we came up to the place we left off on Wednesday.
On Saturday we started the big clean up with many different groups. My family went with Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 and cleaned up the lower campgrounds. Around 5 PM everyone was back and we had a potluck dinner. Later a few people went up to Darland Mountain and watched the sun set.
This was a great time at the Ahtanum State Forest thanks to all who came. Some of the volunteers were from the following groups/clubs: Eastern Washington Adventures, Yakima Valley Timber Wolves, Jeeping Nomads, Selah Cub Scout Pack 276, Yakima Ridgerunners, The Cascadians and maybe a few more.

Every year in April we have a get together for the Eastern Washington Adventure members and their families. This year we opened the event up to the public. We added a yard sale and the Forest Watch Raffle before the main event.
On Friday April 5th, 2013 people came and set up camp for the weekend at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House. We had a short meeting and then a fun get together.
Saturday at around 8:30 AM vendors setup their booths and we put the coffee on. At 3 PM we shut down the Yard Sale and started the Forest Watch Raffle drawing. After the raffle we had a potluck dinner, Doc’s birthday and a get together.
Early Sunday morning it rained hard. We had coffee in the Club House and then worked on getting the trucks and trailers through the new mud areas.
This was another fun EWA Spring Fling thanks to all who came out.
