Mt. Herman Rd. Cleanup this Sunday October 18

Last minute project!

FOMP has just been informed that this coming Sunday October 18th there is an organized cleanup of Mt. Herman Rd. This effort is being run by Leslie Hull and will focus on cleaning up trash and debris along Mt. Herman Rd. from the intersection with Red Rocks Dr. to as far up as Rampart Range Rd. time permitting.

Here are the details for this Sunday’s clean up:

  • The project site/meeting point will be the intersection of Mt. Herman Rd. and the intersection of Red Rocks Dr.
  • Organizers or a USFS representative will be present at the project meeting site from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Sunday if you are only able to attend for a part of the day please stop by to find out where the group is working
  • The USFS will provide a briefing at 8:00 a.m.
  • The USFS will be providing a dumpster for this project
  • Stop by any time and work  for as long as you are able!
  • Lunch will be provided mid day

Hopefully you can find some time to join in this effort to get some much needed clean up completed on Mt. Herman Rd.

BOD Meeting Reminder

This is just a brief reminder that Friends Of Monument Preserve will hold our monthly board meeting tomorrow night Tuesday October 13, 2009 at 7:00PM in the Fire Center Classroom. This is a change from our summer schedule! For those of you unfamiliar with the classroom building make your first left into the Fire Center after Mt. Herman Rd. turns to dirt, the classroom building is the first building on your right.

Our agenda will include the following:

  • Upcoming Fall/Winter 2009/2010 events calendar
  • Summer Trail work briefing
  • Open Agenda for members

It should be short and to the point.
