On National Public Lands Day, the Rocky Mountain Conservancy hosted 32 volunteers for a litter clean-up at Beaver Point in Rocky Mountain National Park (just outside the Beaver Meadows Entrance).
In less than two hours, volunteers collected over 160 lbs of trash from the area. This included construction materials, vehicle parts, abandoned camping gear, cigarette butts, and lots of plastic containers and wrappers!
National Public Lands Day is a nationwide celebration of OUR public lands. On the third Saturday in September, thousands of individuals across the country get out and celebrate public lands through volunteer projects, community events, and recreational offerings! On top of all of this, it is a fee-free day at most public land sites, making it a great opportunity for everyone to get out and enjoy these beautiful places!
