BLM and Lovell Scouts Clean Up Lovell Lakes Area

Several local Boy Scouts and their families teamed-up with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cody Field Office on a recent Saturday to clean up public land at a popular recreation area southeast of Lovell, Wyo.

Boy Scout Kade Englert of Lovell led the effort at the Lovell Lakes area by organizing nineteen other scouts, parents, and BLM Outdoor Recreation Planner Rory Glueckert. The group braved the cold weather to clean up more than a half ton of trash.

Englert coordinated the cleanup in an effort to obtain his Eagle Scout merit badge and the Lovell Lakes project fulfilled a service project requirement towards accomplishing his goal.

“Kade did an excellent job coordinating with the BLM and implementing the project,” said Glueckert. “It’s great to see a young man so dedicated to natural resources and with such an incredible work ethic volunteering for his community.”

The Lovell Lakes area is used for off-highway vehicle recreation and hunting. Englert’s project continued the work of past clean ups by volunteers and the BLM during 2010 and 2011 National Public Lands Day workdays.

For more information contact Glueckert at 307-578-5900.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
