LITTER PICK-UP YAKIMA CANYON
YAKIMA CANYON CLEAN-UP
Join our local Trout Unlimited chapter along with some of us here at Red's and spend a few hours cleaning up the Yakima Canyon. It's Public Lands Day, and the perfect time to do this.
At the end of each summer, there is always trash, inner tubes, beer cans, etc. left over from a summer of recreational use. September is the perfect time to clean things up! The water will be low and easy to get to the litter and the punctured inner tubes that get hung up in the shoreline bushes.
It's really simple. Show up at Big Pines Recreation at about 9 am on September 23rd. We'll divide into various geographic sections, and if you have a drift boat or raft bring it! We can coordinate shuttles with other volunteers. We'll meet back up and dispose of trash in the dumpster at Big Pines or you can use any of the BLM dumpsters that weekend. Since it's Public Lands Day no permits are required to launch or park at these access points.
- 9 am meetup at Big Pines
- 1 pm trash dump followed by lunch/tailgate party.
- Door prizes and good fellowship!
- 2 pm - guilt free DIY fishing!
TU will provide trash bags but there are a few things we recommend.
Please Bring if Possible:
- Trash Grabber Tool (pincher thing)
- Lunch for the 1 pm tailgate party. There will be a BBQ to use!
- Beer or Cold Drinks
