Presented by REI, GORE-TEX® products, and Clif Bar, The Access Fund is proud to announce that the seventh annual Adopt-a-Crag season is in full swing! Marked by the September Adopt-a-Crag Celebration month, Adopt-a-Crag has evolved into a year-round program. More than 43 events across the country are scheduled for this month alone with more being registered every day.

Adopt-a-Crag is the Access Fund's signature stewardship event, a national commitment by the climbing community to natural resource stewardship and volunteerism, bringing climbers together to celebrate their crag and community. It is the largest overall volunteer effort by the climbing community year after year.

Title Sponsor Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), Presenting Sponsor GORE-TEX Products, and Contributing Sponsor Clif Bar are the Access Fund's partners in presenting this event and Adopt-a-Crag would not be possible without their continuous support.

Feedback from successfully completed events has been rolling in with claims of "the most energized and productive event to date", boasting of record volunteer turnouts, and remarks highlighting the positive impact Adopt-a-Crag has left on the crag, community and with land managers. Significant Adopt-a-Crags still to come this month include the Rumney Clean-up, The Gathering in Muir Valley Kentucky, Rifle Clean-up, and the Yosemite Facelift, our biggest event.
