One of the easiest activities for a club or group of off-roaders is to simply pick a trail or riding area and conduct a cleanup. Round up some trash bags, pick-up tools/tongs, gloves and some hand sanitizer/cleaner and go for it.
Organize into small teams if necessary with 2 to 3 rigs in a team. Assign areas to each team. Make sure you have receptacles or trash bins at the rendezvous location. If you can, find a few "rewards" to give the teams with the most trash collected. Make it fun.
Keeping our trails open starts with keeping them clean -- even if it's not our trash!
