Event #5: St. Francis Dam Clean Up

What: Cleaning up a historic site where St. Francis Dam was built

Date: Saturday, Feb 9, 2019

Where: Valencia, off of Copper Hill & San Francisquito Cyn

Why: California Condors fly in that area. They are critically endangered. They mistake trash/glass bits for food. They can die after ingesting the glass bits. Cleaning up the area where they forage for food can help save them indirectly.

Time: 8.30 to 11.30 pm (Pls Be On Time)

What to bring: Water, snacks, tennis shoes

Other things to know:

-The collapse of this dam is the 2nd largest disaster in California.

-Pls carpool with someone. Go to the bathroom before coming since there’s no bathroom there.

-It takes 20 mins from Best Buy Valencia to this place, so it will probably take you 40 mins to get there from Canyon Country. Plan accordingly.

-Not great cell reception out in that area.

-Mind the speed limit & don't pass, no matter how slow the car is in front of you. Many accidents on San Francisquito Cyn.

-Come and sign up at lunch in Mr. Yong’s room (G-107) if you can come.
