2017 second Saturday

January 14, 2017 by mike swope

As we started the yrars 1st cleanup we knew we had some issues confronting us…but just like last year…we find a way to adapt to improvise and to over come!

The trash that is…it was not the way i like to start the yrar…sadly the lake was trashed.

Happilly we deployed both a ground crew

Along with a water surface group too

Being the only AAS group from the FTLOTL group that has multible cleaning strategies and the volunteers to put “our kayaks and boots on time and on target”

We dont just talk trash….we get trashed!

So take this in a little….its overcast high humidity and windy with a air temp of 41 degrees. The wind is blowing from a ling fetch from the northwest and across the water makes it feel colder and wetter too.

We had one young one..Thanks Rider

And we still had 15 hardy soles shoe up

And get the job done….


Please notice the shorts…Jason Rocks!!


if there were not still at least another metric ton of garbage I would say

           Misson Accomplished! 

So if you were feeling cold wet on the outside but warm and fuzzy on the inside

Check and see if you were one of the hardy folks hanging with KPC!!!!!

Thanks to all our Volunteers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Was that snow?

But we will be at the lake on the 14th for the 1st Second Saturday Shoreline Spruceup of our AAS section of 2017.

Eco Tour de force

November 20, 2016 by mike swope

What a fab day…a little cool in the shadow of the trees but perfect in the sun!

Just ask Chuck…he will tell you!

And some of the trees can cast a big shadow…BIG SHADOW!!!

Sadly the flood took its toll on several trees including this one that goes bank to bank…BIG tree!

The upper before the RR bridge is still very open…but that 1st group of trees is very sporty (read in paddle like you mean it!!!l ita a drop to the left and the right requires a 90 degree left turn in current!

Needles to say…we had a fun!

Beside a lot of different birds we also were treated to a coyote pacing us for a few hundred yards and in the spirit of you never know what your going to see

Yup…thats not pour off…that’s water coming out from an underground source forming a small waterfall!

Crystal Clear and building and nice mini carve out in the shale!

Just another reason to enjoy the nature and beauty of the Elm Fork!

Hope to see you in December for the final 2016 Eco Tour! Sat Dec  17th!

Fantastic Volunteers…

I love starting that way because we have the most fantastic volunteers on any floating water and the terra firma too!

But we dont rest on our success…every month we go out and take it to the trash!

To show a few…and it funny you just dont realise the vast amount of help our urban watershed needs to stay healthy.

Untll you see the volume of debris in 3d!

Thanks to our ground crew for providing the hot soup and fixins to keep us fueled.

Special Note 2nd Saturday December is 

KPC trash warrior Tee shirt day!

1st come 1st serve till their gone!

Additional pro grade photos coming via the man who had a ball shooting!

Thanks Steve!

Almost the end.
