Join your community to help clean a trash-filled camp near the Jud Wiebe trail.
Meet this Saturday, May 30 or Sunday, May 31 at 9:00AM at the top of North Aspen Street for orientation.
There will be a additional orientations and cleanup the following weekend, June 6th & 7th.
In order to help, you must be present at the orientation on Saturday or Sunday morning.
Join us and enjoy a day of making your national forest and your community a better, cleaner place. Harold Wondsel has been working hard on getting everything together and we are happy to report that a helicopter will be helping with the clean-up efforts. We will have 2 full weekends to bag and gather all the trash to a staging area. On June 11th a helicopter will come in and extract the bagged trash from the site.
Clean up work will also be going on all week for those that have done the orientation and go up in teams of 2 or more people (no solo work is allowed for safety reasons). Harold Wondsel will be offering additional orientations during the week for those that missed the weekend. Contact him with any questions at 970.708-3807 or message him on Facebook.
Wear old clothes, good boots and long pants (mandatory). Bring water, food and anything else you might need personally. Gloves, masks, bags and gear will be provided for the volunteers. We hope to see you there!
