Volunteers Needed for Clear Creek Cleanup Project

Volunteers are needed to help clean up the Lower Clear Creek area in a project set for Saturday, Oct. 13, as part of the National Public Lands Day observance.  The Bureau of Land Management, Western Shasta Resource Conservation District and Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve will host the event.

Working from the banks of Clear Creek and along Clear Creek Road, volunteers will pick up litter, scour off graffiti and repair hiking trails in the day-long project.   The BLM will provide gloves, tools, safety equipment and water.

Participants should meet at 9 a.m. at the Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve parking lot, seven miles west of Highway 273 on Clear Creek Road. 

They day will conclude at 2 p.m. with a barbecue, including prize giveaways, at the Horsetown Clear Creek Preserve.  Additionally, each volunteer will receive a one-day pass good for free entry at any public land fee site managed by the BLM, National Park Service, Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Army Corps of Engineers.

National Public Lands Day events are being held across the country, providing a chance for community residents to make their public lands safer and cleaner. 

Last year more than 170,000 volunteers worked at more than 2,000 sites in every state, the District of Columbia and many U. S. territories planting trees, removing trash, building trails and clearing invasive plants.  Their contributions were estimated at $17 million.

More information on the Redding area event is available from Bill Kuntz or Shawn Stapleton at the BLM Redding Field Office, (530) 224-2100.
