In September 2021, the Bay Area Climbers Coalition in conjunction with Queer Crush and the City of Berkeley Parks and Recreation department successfully hosted an Adopt-A-Crag at Mortar Rock – located on the ancestral land of the Ohlone people.
During this event we were able to spread over 2 truck loads of mulch as well as remove garbage from the site. We even had a surprise where local climbers were so excited to see what we were doing that they decided to abandon their current plans and join us for a day of stewardship and ultimately give us around 10 dedicated volunteers.
We would like to thank the City of Berkeley and Queer Crush for helping make this event possible and we’re looking forward to future events with both organizations!
We are still looking forward to organizing events with community volunteers once land managers allow for hosting large groups! If you are interested in volunteering or participating, here’s how to get involved for future events!
