Facelift Act Local Cleanup at Blue Granite Gym

October 1, 2022

9:00 am - 3:00 pm

September 28 @ 9:10 am

Join the Yosemite Climbing Association on October 1st for a Facelift Act Local cleanup in South Lake Tahoe, California! Get ready for a full day of giving back to places we play. 

As an extension of the successful Yosemite Facelift event, the objective of Facelift Act Local is for you to pick up litter, engage in service projects on our public lands, and spread the work of stewardship to some of the most visited and beautiful recreation areas in the country. The hope is not only to help clean up South Lake Tahoe in a single day but to inspire action to maintain a pristine landscape here and everywhere you go! 

The presenting partner for the South Lake Tahoe Facelift is Blue Granite Gym. Blue Granite is more than an average climbing gym, offering yoga classes, youth programs, and community events. Climbing access is at the forefront of their daily mission. Staffers and gym-goers alike practice respect, progression, and stewardship. 

Help spread the word about Yosemite Facelift by tagging #FaceliftActLocal or #YosemiteFacelift2022 when sharing your experience online. This event is powered by volunteers like you! We can’t wait to get our hands dirty with you. Meet at Blue Granite Gym at 8AM! If you also want to participate in a Climb-a-thon fundraiser for a local climbing coalition, please contact Blue Granite Gym. 

The South Lake Tahoe Facelift will be a part of a larger three-day event aiming to bring awareness to the Yosemite Climbing Association’s mission.
