Washington State Dept of Natural Resources has cancelled the Pick Up The Burn event in the Yacolt Burn State Forest that was scheduled for April 25th. (That's the big one where all the Rec groups join up to clean the whole forest in one day). Might do it later in the year.
Mt Hood Nat Forest main and field offices are closed to walk in traffic but staff is still there handling phone calls and doing in-house business.
Trash No Land is not scheduling any cleanups till this blows over. (Instead, we'll be busy with shooting lane improvements in the Santiam State Forest, NF Wolf Creek Rd Lanes 1 & 4, planning for a lane improvement in the Gilchrist State Forest and meeting with WA DNR about doing lane improvements).
The good new is the FOREST IS STILL OPEN!!! Probably one of the very few places you can go to find some relief from the mayhem and be in a virus free environment.
So when you go out to do some shooting, perhaps you could bag up a few bags of trash. Or maybe just go out to do some trash hunting. Take the fam and make it a day of doing some good. Post up some pics and what forest you went to, and I'll let the forest agency know you were there. They need to know we are still out there doing something because we value recreational target shooting. It's how we keep it open.
More to come, about committing 'Random Acts of Cleanups' soon. Perhaps we can make a difference, even without group events!
Peace, Love and Gunpowder,
