Pack it In, Pack it Out

Pool noodles left at Soaking Pool Pool noodles left at Soaking Pool Steven Charter


We ask everyone to come pretty self-contained with food, drink, towels, robes; if you're camping, cookware and dishes. Hats are a great alternative to sunscreen. One particular item that people bring and tend to leave behind are pool toys and noodles. Please take them home with you.

We do our best to manage and dispose of recyclable materials responsibly, but it requires a tremendous amount of work and a trip across the Valley once a week; no one comes to pick it up for us. If you have a service or routine of recycling at home it would be greatly appreciated if you would take your recyclables when you leave.

Please separate food waste from trash. There are food scrap buckets in locations where there are trash bins. Food scraps in the dumpster attract, and create, nuisance wildlife. Food scraps are fed to the chickens so don't include eggshells; it teaches the chickens to peck the eggs they lay.

Thank you for doing your part.
