The unfortunate scene above is a common site on your public lands - cultivation of narcotics is only one example of how people mistreat the land.

Casual littering also pollutes the lands and water...please keep our lands clean and pick up your trash.

Fort Ord National Monument 

The Fort Ord National Monument is recovering from it's legacy since the early 20th century as the Home of the Lightfighters U.S. Army Infantry - training our nation's soldiers in the latest small arms technology.  This leagcy has left dangerous and dirty waste related to spent (and sometimes live) artillery on the land which must be cleaned up.  As a designated "Superfund site" per the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), the former Fort Ord clean up is being done with the oversight of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and various California State Agencies.

Visit FortOrdCleanUp.com for more information and see how the local community is helping to clean up these precious lands.
