    Hermiston Area cleanup April 28
    « on: April 16, 2012, 11:12:51 AM »
    Apr 28 Hermiston area BLM Clean up.  Meeting time is 10am
    Same place as other clean ups. Sagebrush rd. and Bagget. We are going to focus on the north end of the property.
    We have made a positive difference in this area so far, and we would like to finish what we started. Only need to bring gloves and study shoes, but shovels and rakes would help.  We will provide water and garbage bags.  I will bring my utility trailer with 4ft sides. BLM is taking care of garbage disposal.

    Looking foward to seeing everyone out.  We need help with this as it gives the club and wheelers a good name with BLM.

    Bring gloves to pick up garbage, bug spray would not be a bad idea either.

    This was our third event in this area.  In the last 14 months it has been amazing the changes that have been made with the hard work of few.  During this event we had geocachers from the Walla Walla area treck over to help with the hard work.  We nearly filled the large dumpster that BLM provided with tons of garbage.  We were able to turn over evidence of littering (names) to BLM for investigation.  We removed two large tractor tires and piles of coil shell along with matresses and and other types of garbage.  Thanks to Hiteck for not smacking me when I screamed because of the mouse, I have a thing against them.  Colton and Little L uncovered more nasty living things removing other garbage.  JoMama, a mother and daughter team bagged several bags along with the three generations that were part of Cheveep's team.  The little kids age 5 and under picked up some garbage and then took a break to play, but were quite cute and well behaved.  At the end of the clean up we held a raffle and prizes were a mix of things.  Rice Krispie treats were handed out and again I would like to thank everyone who attended.  With the help of all of our volunteers we made a difference and have decided to conduct the clean up once a year to maintain the land.

    Thanks Colton & Jamie we had a good time, with a clean up like that you never know what you will fined we did find some mail that was opened but had been out there for a while and a sleeping bag and note from some Cowboys girlfriend saying don't call me anymore, wonder if they got back together or not? Just toy N around (James) and my Grand kid Jordy are up to doing it next year.
