Youth cleanup project in the Eastern Sierra
The Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra outdoor education program teamed with the Bureau of Land Management's Bishop Field Office to pick up trash at the Long Valley Hot Tub sites.
Five youth and two leaders from Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra worked with BLM staff at the two heavily-used hot tub sites, “Wild Willy’s" and "Hill Top.” Several trash bags were collected and taken away. Spirits were high and the kids were anxious to help out. (text continues below)
“Projects like this one will help to engage the youth in resource management” said Becky Hutto, BLM Park Ranger.
This is a first-year partnership between DSES and BLM. "Our hope is to continue working with each other to future resource projects," Hutto said.
