National Public Lands Day – Warner Valley Cleanup

The Zion District Boy Scouts had a busy National Public Lands Day. In addition to their work in the Red Cliffs NCA, 40 scouts and their parents participated in a public lands cleanup south of Hurricane in the Warner Valley area. 
 
In just over four hours, the dedicated volunteers loaded pallets, lumber, cardboard, tires, and abandoned vehicle parts into a waiting dumpster. They also filled garbage bags with a large amount of “target trash,” including broken glass, shotgun shells, spent cartridges, and aluminum cans.
 
BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Kyle Voyles participated in the project and was impressed with the scouts’ work ethic. “This is certainly a dedicated group of volunteers, working year after year to eliminate irresponsible use of public lands,” said Voyles. “The BLM St. George Field Office is fortunate to have a group of volunteers as dedicated as the Zion District Boy Scouts.”
