Volunteering = Love

Since 1989 the Independence Pass Foundation has relied on the passion of people who love Independence Pass as much as we do to volunteer their time to help us maintain and enhance the ecology, beauty, and recreational opportunities available in our magnificent backyard.

This week one of those volunteers, Tim Hall, spent two days with Independence Pass Foundation scouring the corridor for trash, hauling out site poles mangled by avalanches and automobiles, and removing telephone wire dangling from long-abandoned poles along the corridor.

Of his experience, Tim reflects: “Helping pick up trash and other debris on Independence Pass was not only a pleasure, it was an honor. Like IPF, I love the Pass with all my heart. That beautiful landscape has provided me with a great deal of joy and inspiration over the years, so thank you for the opportunity to show the Pass a little of my love and appreciation. It’s the least I could do… so let’s do more!”
