Volunteers Sought for Second Cal Poly Canyon Clean Up Day April 11

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Cal Poly's College of Architecture & Environmental Design (CAED) is calling on volunteers for Canyon Days 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 11. Canyon Days 2 is part of an overall restoration and sustainability effort by the CAED to revitalize Poly Canyon and repair damage caused by recent vandalism.

Volunteer jobs include painting, installing railing in the Bridge House, finishing repairs on Fratessa Tower and the Pole House, installing signage, and preparing for Open House (set for April 17-19). Lunch and music will be provided. There will be a shuttle service from the H4 parking lot off Village Drive. 

The Poly Canyon Structural Design Laboratory is home to more than 20 experimental prototypes including sculptures and residential design/build projects. The canyon evokes fond memories for those who have acted as caretakers, built or re-built a structure, or participated in the Design Village Competition.

“Canyon Days moves us one step closer to providing future students an opportunity to experience what alumni have experienced in the past,” said Associate Dean Kevin Dong, “a rich and memorable Learn by Doing experience.”
