This event was eligible for a voucher toward a complimentary Discover Pass.

On Friday June 29th, 2018, volunteers headed from Selah to north of Kittitas, Washington to set up camp for the Eastern Washington Adventures Naneum Ridge State Forest Work Party.

We found a flat place to set up camp on Dawson Cutoff Road. Other volunteers showed that evening.

On Saturday morning, we meet the DNR staff at The Orchard on Coleman Creek Road. Other volunteers also came to help. At 10 AM we headed across the Naneum Ridge State Forest fixing Green Dot Markers and picking up trash. We meet back up at The Orchard with the DNR in the afternoon to load the smaller trash into their truck to haul away. The big items we piled up and gave the location to the DNR staff to pick up later.

Once camp was set up, we decided to take a sightseeing drive. We headed to the Naneum Basin, then up to Wenatchee Mountain, over snow drifts on Naneum ridge Road, and then back to camp. The trip was fun even with cold high winds, but views were not good due to the clouds very low.

On Sunday we headed across the Colockum Wildlife Area to West Bar on the Columbia River. Across the river you could see Crescent Bar. After awhile enjoying the beach, we headed back to camp taking a different route.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came to volunteer. Thank you to all the volunteers, Eastern Washington Adventures Members, Kittitas County Field & Stream members, and the Department of Natural Resources.

4th Annual Juniper Dunes Clean Up
Hosted by the Midnite Mudders
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets/Eastern Washington Adventures.

On Friday April 13th, 2018 we headed from Selah to Juniper Dunes near Pasco, Washington to camp for the weekend to help with the Midnite Mudders 4th Annual clean up.

We set up camp around 1 PM and waited for others in our Eastern Washington Adventures group to get there. Around dark, we headed out for a night run in the dunes for a few hours.

Saturday morning we headed to the beginning of Smith Canyon road to sign in for the Midnite Mudders Juniper Dunes Clean up.  Once everyone was signed in, our group headed out with two Wranglers, to new Cherokees, and two Yamaha YXZ Side-by-sides. We worked our way out to the north end by running the wilderness fence picking up trash a long the way and back through the west side dunes to the Midnite Mudders camp.

The Midnite Mudders were starting their raffle as we pulled into their camp. There were a lot of people there that were part of the clean up.

We want to thank everyone that came out to help with the Juniper Dunes Clean Up. Thank you to the Midnite Mudders for hosting this great event.

Here are some photos of the 2018 Juniper Dunes Clean Up:

This event was eligible for a voucher toward a complimentary Discover Pass.

On Friday August 4th, 2017, volunteers headed north of Kittitas, Washington to set up camp for the Eastern Washington Adventures Naneum Ridge State Forest Work Party.

We found a flat place to set up camp at the end of Schnebly Canyon Road. Once camp was set up, we decided to take a sightseeing drive. We headed to Walter Flats, then up to Wenatchee Mountain, and then back to camp. The trip was fun, but views were not good due to all the smoke in the air from the fires up north.

On Saturday morning, we meet the DNR staff at The Orchard on Coleman Creek Road. We followed the DNR truck across the Naneum Ridge State Forest fixing Green Dot Markers and picking up trash. Over all, the area was in good shape.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came to volunteer.
