Note: has been a staunch supporter of Mike’s efforts at Scenic as Mike has supported efforts to get Austin Hot Springs available to the public once again. If you find yourself in the Portland area . . . or just need an excuse to go down there, this is a worthy project. Bagby is a fine hot spring, and a chance to visit Austin does not comes often. Rick

Hi all, on May 20th there will be an organized clean up up both Bagby and Austin Hot Springs, and the road and rivers in between.

It’s a big undertaking, and we could use all the help we can get.

This might be the first organized group/public cleanup allowed by the Forest Service at Bagby since the Friends of Bagby days. All I know for sure is that there’s a ton of stuff that needs to be picked up under the bath house.

We’re not just cleaning things up. We’ll be planting trees and pulling out weeds too.

Sign in is at 9am at the Estacada Ranger Station. Here’s the link to the flier:

If you plan on going please let me know so I can buy you lunch. We’ll be having a bbq after the cleanup.

Regards to one and all.
