Redding Business Organizes OHV Area Cleanup Project

A crew of about 20 Redding area residents braved a stormy day recently for a cleanup project at the Chappie-Shasta Off Highway Vehicle Area.  They hauled away two trailer loads of trash, and are planning more cleanup events.

The event was promoted and organized by Ross Glave, owner of Flexpoint Offroad, a Redding four-wheel-drive shop.

“We are so happy that these recreation users are taking pride is this public OHV area by helping to keep it clean,” said Jennifer Mata, manager of the BLM Redding Field Office.  “All visitors to the area will benefit from the work they did.”
