Volunteers Needed at Fort Meade Recreation Area
Volunteers are needed Saturday, June 14, at Fort Meade Recreation Area to construct a short walking trail and clean up the Alkali Creek picnic and camping site.
Volunteer sign-in starts at 8:30 a.m. Project work will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony. A free picnic lunch hosted by the Bureau of Land Management will be provided for volunteers.
Managed by the BLM, Fort Meade Recreation Area is two miles east of Sturgis, S.D. To reach the work site, take Exit 34 off Interstate 90 (Black Hills National Cemetery) and follow signs to the Alkali Creek Recreation Site.
This volunteer work day is sponsored by the BLM as part of National Public Lands Day, the largest annual coast-to-coast volunteer restoration effort for America’s public lands. It has been rescheduled twice due to inclement weather.
