Despite a cold/wet start, on/off sun/rain/fog/warm/cold/wind, over 50 volunteers, from all forms of recreation interests, came to share their team spirit and take part in a wonderful thing. Pick Up The Burn in Yacolt State Forest!
Groups dispersed throughout the Larch Mntn area and cleaned it up real well! Then we all met back at the Jones Creek Trailhead for a really nice (well deserved) BBQ lunch, cooked by the new DNR Recreation Manager Sharon Steriti, and boy it was good! Prizes were won by several.
As we closed out and said our goodbye’s, you could feel the satisfaction radiating from the hearts of the volunteers, as all knew we did a good thing together. We were a team and we shared a moment of success together!
We all hate cleaning up other peoples trash, but doing it with good people like this really makes it fun! And WE HAD FUN!
Thank you all and we all thank our host, the Pacific Cascade Region of WA DNR!
