Cleanup in Klamath County
The Clean Forest Project hosts a cleanup of an illegal dump site on October 11, 2008.
Though many in the Klamath Basin are gearing up for birding season in the region while others are getting in one last canoe trip down the Williamson, some are preparing for winter in a different way... The Clean Forest Project, a regional group from Grants Pass, are doing their part to restore the Klamath, one site at a time.
The Clean Forest Project is holding an event from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, October 11th at the Braymill Cinder pit in Klamath County. Volunteers are needed to help with the cleanup of this illegal dumpsite.
Clean Forest Project works in partnership with land managers, businesses and the community to address the growing problem of illegal dumping on public land in Klamath County. Illegal dumping contaminates drinking water, endangers wildlife, threatens the health of people who recreate in our forests and contributes fuel to an already severe wildfire situation.
Oregon Wild supports the mission of the Clean Forest Project: To mobilize the communities of Southern Oregon to care for their public lands by participating in forest-wide cleanups of illegal dumpsites and restoration of land damaged by illegal dumping; reaching out to and educating school children to be good citizens and stewards of their public land; tackling other important stewardship opportunities as they arise.
