BLM HOSTS PUBLIC LANDS DAY VOLUNTEER EVENTS: volunteers come out by the hundreds
National Public Lands Day volunteersVolunteers turned out at sites throughout the state to help BLM celebrate National Public Lands Day (NPLD), September 28:
- In its first NPLD event, the El Centro field office hosted volunteers who collected trash and debris at Table Mountain Area of Critical Environmental Concern in Eastern San Diego County.
- The Ridgecrest field office had a successful project improving the historic Mingus-Meade Cabin and surrounding public land in the El Paso Mountains.
- In the Sierra, Bishop field office volunteers spent the day cleaning up Lone Ranger Canyon in the Alabama Hills in preparation for the annual Lone Pine Film Festival.
- A few hard-working volunteers helped clean-up Dead Indian Canyon, a popular hiking area in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument.
- Nearly 200 volunteers turned out for the Mitchell Range Improvement Project NPLD event for the Barstow field office, constructing a segment of new trail, improving a portion of existing trail, cleaning debris and painting picnic tables and shade structures.
- Taking advantage of cooler temperatures in late October, the city of Needles will join BLM to host a related NPLD cleanup project along a six-mile segment of the East Mojave Heritage Trail - see item below.

Not a Public Lands Day event, but volunteers turn out to clean up trash at site in Nevada County, CA: "...many residents near Deadmans Flat ... are tired of the beer-drinking rowdies, the trespassing all-terrain vehicles and people who treat the rugged, dusty terrain as a dump....Many trespassers mistakenly believe the land is owned by the federal Bureau of Land Management. It isn't, but BLM does have neighboring property."

Weed of the Week: Ripgut bromeWEED OF THE WEEK - Ripgut brome
Occurs throughout California to British Columbia. Within the public lands administered by the Arcata Field Office ripgut brome occurs as a problem weed on the Samoa Peninsula -- where past noxious weeds have changed the soil characteristics, making it hospitable to annual grasses. Annual grasses and their seeds are difficult to remove and their presence inhibits colonization by native and endangered plants.
