Caring Hands on Public Lands!
On the morning of March 1, 2015, over 200 people volunteered to help clean up public lands within the Table Mesa Recreation Area, a very popular destination point for recreational target shooters, hikers, OHV riders, prospectors who pan for gold, campers, hunters, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The annual event was part of the "Respected Access is Open Access" campaign promoted by BLM Arizona, Tread Lightly!, and the Arizona Game & Fish Department. The weather was wet and cold, but did not deter the public from coming out and cleaning up their public lands. Over 13 tons of trash was collected!
While the event provided a direct benefit to reducing trigger trash in the area, it also served as a means to engage recreation target shooters about the effects of irresponsible shooting.
BLM Arizona thanks the following sponsors and partners for supporting this successful effort: Tread Lightly!, Arizona Game & Fish Department, Discount Tire, Arizona Off-Highway Coalition, AZ Firearms, Barlow Adventures, Boone and Crocket Club, Congressional Sportsman's Foundation, National Rifle Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation, and Safari Club International.
