Mountain & River Adventures Campground is moving to a NO GLASS campground to be in line with guidelines set out by the Sequoia National Forest. We are using 2017 as a transitional season to give you and us time to figure out how best to camp without bringing glass to our Forest.
Here are some of our ideas:
Watch what you are buying.
There are lots of alternative options to buying glass.
While planning your trip make sure that none of your non food items contain glass
Buy your alcohol in cans or boxes or even pouring it into a metal container or bladder.
There are so many different options; cans, boxes, metal. The options are endless.
The local brewery in Kernville now sells their beer in cans too!!
Always remember to leave nature better than the way you found it by keeping trash bags handy and easy to use, and thereby keeping trash contained and not carried off in the wind.
Pop-up trash can, bring extra trash bags, and hold it down with a rock in the bottom (we have plenty of rocks)!
Unpack new camping gear ahead of time, to practice and make sure everything works. Leave packaging at home, saves on car space, and creates less trash when camping.We are excited for the summer 2017 and our transition year. We look forward to see you in the campground or on the water and working together to camping glass free!!
The storms are lining up here in the high sierras and we are truly grateful for the snow accumulations building in the mountains. So get ready and start thinking about warm summer sand in your toes, camping out under the stars, and lots of memories to be made with family and friends.
Winter is the time for all of our Boy and Girl Scouts, YMCA’s, schools, and other non-profit groups who rely on fundraising to begin calling us to get their reservations started for 2016. We are happy to be receiving your calls and look forward to planning just the right river outing for your group! If you haven’t started planning your group’s 2016 summer outing, we are standing by for your call at (800) 861-6553.
We are also selling off some of our gently used and new mountain bikes, stand up paddleboards and other gear. So if you are in the market for outdoor equipment, be sure to give us a call at (800) 861-6553 to see what great deals we have for you.
Consider an MRA gift certificate for the active, fun-seekers on your holiday gift list too!
