The Friends of Eldorado National Forest Public Lands Day Work Party
Coalition of Organizations, OHV Users and Companies hold massive clean-up
The Friends of Eldorado (FOE) National Forest and the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) combined forces for a massive volunteer effort in Eldorado National Forest for the 15th annual National Public Lands Day on September 27, 2008.
The Saturday work party consisted of two separate volunteer crews. The garbage cleanup crew managed to remove over 30 cubic yards of illegally dumped trash near Grizzly Flat, which included household garbage, appliances, and scrap. Filling up a 20 yard dumpster generously donated by Amador Disposal/Waste Connections fairly quickly, workers also and even removed 2 abandoned vehicles from the forest using winches and trailers.
