Clean Up Marijuana Canyon
Earlier this year our attempt to remove rubbish from Marijuana Canyon was postponed due to weather. Years ago, there was a marijuana plantation in the upper canyon. Plastic sheeting has broken down and is contaminating the canyon all the way down to and into Bowens Creek S branch. There is wire netting, plastic and other rubbish to be removed. Marijuana Canyon is near Mt Charles on Bells Line of Road.. There is a 1 km walk along a fire trail then a steep climb to the canyon. The rubbish will be carried back up to the fire trail then to Bells Line of Road. Mark Brown will dispose of the rubbish. Bushwalkers and canyoners are invited to help with the clean up. After the clean up canyoners are invited to do Marijana Canyon. When booking please advise whether you will do the clean up only or the clean and the canyon.
