Cody Field Office and Volunteers Clean-Up Red Lake
Local volunteers, Marathon Oil and BLM staff cleaned-up both public and private land in the Red Lake area south of Cody on Sept. 18 during a workday to celebrate National Public Lands Day. Approximately 50 volunteers from the Cody area, including 20 members of the Yellowstone Quake hockey team, picked up trash that had been illegally dumped in this popular recreation area. Red Lake is enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers and motorcycle and ATV riders.
Marathon Oil donated the use of a dump trailer to haul the trash and the group recycled as much of it as possible, including car motors, appliances and tires.
Cody Assistant Field Manager Fred McDonald thanked all the volunteers for participating in this worthy project. "Public lands belong to everyone and the improvements made today will result in more enjoyable experiences in the Red Lake area for everyone," McDonald said.
