WSU’s Outdoor Program Hosts Sunday Service Days
OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University’s Outdoor Program is taking the opportunity to give back to the community by cleaning up local areas in Ogden. The cleanups started on Sept. 20 at the Ogden River Parkway and will continue Oct. 25 at the 9th Street Crag, a popular climbing destination, and Nov, 8 at the WSU campus.
“We are fortunate to have access to a wealth of outdoor recreation resources in the Ogden area, so we want to give back and do our part to be good stewards of these resources,” said Hayley Prine, Outdoor Program coordinator. “These programs are open to the general public and WSU affiliates alike.”
Due to measures required by COVID-19, participants must pre-register by the Monday prior to the event, and space is limited. Registration is available at weber.edu/outdoor/service_events. Volunteers are asked to bring their own day pack, sturdy closed-toe shoes, food, water, jacket and sun protection. The Outdoor Program will provide other necessary equipment. Organizers will take the temperature of all volunteers as they arrive.
“The Weber State campus community spends a great deal of time at the 9th Street Crag, especially during the Monday night climbing event we offer each week,” said Sarah MacKay, Campus Recreation marketing coordinator. “Because of that, we decided to do trail maintenance on Oct. 25. We just want to make sure the trails are cleaned up, trash free and easy to get through.”
In addition to the river and 9th Street Crag, The Outdoor Program will clean up the WSU Ogden campus and surrounding trails on Nov. 8.
