Default Glass Factory Range Clean Up - Santa Barbara - SUNDAY MARCH 13!

There has been discussion for a while on starting up another range clean up day up at the Glass Factory - here it is!


The date many people have thought about is

SUNDAY, MARCH 13.


Meet at Glass Factory at 9AM


DIRECTIONS TO THE RANGE: (Edit Point A to your start location): http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=sa...076.4458&hl=en

Post below if you will be attending, and if you will have any other guests with you. I will add you to the list below. Itd be a good idea if each person can bring a rake or shovel and some trashbags, along with a pair of gloves. I will have several rolls of trashbags and 10 rakes or so left over from the last cleanup.

I will also have an 18' utility trailer that we can load up and I will haul to the dump.

I want to help keep E. Camino Cielo Glass Factory Range Open!:

I'm in with at least one extra friend.

Have we got the range closed for at least a few hours yet?

Great start guys!

gttur - as far as I know I dont have any provisions or plans for doing that. The previous clean ups Ive participated in werent in coop with BLM or Rangers, as I guess the last one was. We simply showed up first thing in the morning and mob mentality set in - no one is going to shoot when there are 30 people on the range with trashbags haha.

I believe what we did last time was create a few flyers/signs and posted them up there a week or two in advance to alert locals to the range being closed, as well as recruit some more help!

Sorry to thread jack but I couldn't find an answer anywhere. Is the glass factory open right now? I am going to ventura this weekend and I wanted to check it out. Thanks.

Default Was open today.

It has not been closed for quite awhile to the best of my knowledge, and was open today. Weekends are sometimes too crowded... But today was nice.
Signs are posted that E Camino Cielo is closed at Gibralter, (9 mi east of Paradise road) but it's no problem getting there from 154 or Paradise Rd.
I'd have taken a pic but it looked like a dump.
See you all there on the 13th.

I'm in for this one. Hopefully I can convince my wife to join in (and shoot afterwords for a little bit).

I'll drive my truck up, with some garbage cans and whatever else I can get rid of. If you can't toss it at the dump just add some to your regular trash can for a couple of weeks. That's how I get rid of stuff that's not big enough to make a dump run, but needs to be trashed.

If anything it's good exercise for an hour or 2 (I have No idea how long you guys do this for). Then a little shooting never hurt right?

Cool! Obviously, the more people that show up, the quicker it goes.

If I remember correctly in about 3 hours we knocked out a CONSIDERABLE amount at the range.

What worked best was to have some individuals with large rakes raking into piles, then other teams (or solo) with a garbage bag and shovel. The rakers can set out and make piles, the shovelers come in behind and bag and carry to the trash area. If we stay organized and work somewhat in a pattern it will be quick work.

I contacted the rangers office today to try and get any help from them that we can get. I just kept getting transferred around but finally was referred to the guy that helped out last time but he wasn't in the office. I will try again tomorrow to see if I can talk to him.

I've contacted Larry from the forest service but he says they don't have the resources to help us out.

I also contacted Craig (kidnk9s) who setup one of the last big clean ups. He will see what he can do about hopefully getting Marborg to help out again with a dumpster. Hopefully we won't need any trailers brought up with us.

As Craig did before, I will supply hotdogs and bottled water to all that help us with this project.

More to come before this happens I'm sure

I was out there this past Sunday. It is really bad out there. There were also several people drinking which made me very nervous. I saw many people drag trash out there and then not take it with them when they left. It just pi*ses me off. I take EVERYTHING that I bring out there. We even had a water bottle set up way on the hill. When we were done, we ran up there and picked it up. It doesn't take that long to do this and it isn't rocket science. Wow people are lazy.

This is why we need to educate as well as have these clean ups. Most people don't even think about picking up after themselves. They are under the impression that this is the Rangers job.

Everyone that sees me raking up shells and bagging up the trash thank me and say why didn't I think of bringing bags with me.

Educating is good, but I wasn't about to confront drunken people holding firearms. But I was able to recruit some people for the clean-up. Hopefully they come!

I'm there, and so is Zorrm. That place is a disaster, I am building wooden target that will be left there for people if this range can be taken care of.

Hard to see the trash with the snow and distance of the picture. ...Cars obscured to respect everyone's privacy. Looking forward to helping get this place cleaned up a little next month.
glass facto 022011_edited-6.jpg

If anyone is familiar with this area, there is a smaller open range on W. Camino Cielo, but the dirt road can get a little hanky 2WD could make it before the rains this year, but I haven't been back since Nov. Range is a mile or two past the gate. I've picked up a bit of the trash, but have not made much of a difference. I'm glad to see so many more Calgunners helping keep these places from turning into dumps.

Huh? I'm not following your saying there is another range besides glass factory and winchester gun club in santa barbara? Can you please point it out to me on google maps?

When was the pic taken in the OP? That looks a hell of a lot cleaner than it was when I was going to UCSB last year. I was in on one of those range cleanups last year.

I believe that was taken after the big clean up that was done last year.
