Volunteers Sought for National Public Lands Day

In support of its goal of making America great through shared conservation, the Bureau of Land Management along with the US Forest Service are seeking volunteers to lend a hand Saturday, Sept. 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for National Public Lands Day.

Volunteers will help with BLM campsite maintenance as well as USFS road maintenance at the BLM/USFS Liberty campground. This recreation site is located just off Highway 97, approximately 16 miles north of Cle Elum, Wash.

A Beach cleanup event in the Olympic National Park will consist of meeting at the trail head and then a 0.07 mile walk down the Second Beach trail at 2:00 p.m. where a short program will be held discussing marine debris and the issues surrounding its impact on the environment. Ranger and participants will then walk along the coast picking up marine debris as they find it.

Tools, project materials, and refreshments will be provided.  Participants are encouraged to wear closed toe shoes, long pants, and to bring water and sunscreen.  Please meet at the north entrance to the campground.
