Kalama Green Mountain Rock Hound Collecting area update
Due to forester activity in and around the Green Mountain area, ALL of
the Kalama Rock Hound area is closed as of May 6th, 2010. The
WSMC will be notified when the area is to re-open.
Please respect this notice to help keep the area open to us for rock hounding.
LongView Fibre is now LongView Timber
We will be able to get back in to Kalama Green Mountain area to rockhound, with some restrictions.
We need to be on our best behavior. I.E. fill in our holes, and not dig where we should not.
The area south of the beaver ponds is closed and the J. E. Johnson road area (south of the ponds) is Closed FOREVER.
The area North of the ponds is open.
Remember that if you go on LVT property to rockhound, let them know you are doing so.
If we want to keep this area open we must follow the rules set forth by the land owners. LongView Timber.
For more information please contact the Bellevue Rock Club at firstname.lastname@example.org
LongView Timber (LVT) has sent the WSMC a set of rules to be
followed while on their property. This applies to the Kalama area
as well as the rest of LongView Timber land.
All people that want to rockhound on LVT land need to contact LVT and
ask them if it is ok to go onto there land. This applies to ALL, even
if you have all the proper paper work and have gotten a key for your
club you need to contact LVT and ask if it is ok.
For safety reasons, LVT requests all rock hounding
recreational users of the Kalama Green Mountain area to get permission
before going onto their property.
In the summer time they generally close their land to recreational use
due to FIRE hazard. Also they may be working the land and at that time
there would be no access to the general public. All who take a group or
go as a individual on to there land must have permission from LVT.
We will try our best to post when the area is closed, it will be posted at on this website.
