The volunteer spirit was alive and well as 35 people celebrated National Public Lands Day at the annual Mary’s Peak Cleanup in Benton County, Oregon!

For many volunteers, this was their 2nd to 4th return to this cleanup.  Each year the trash is less than the year before!

This is a good place for target practice.  It’s location and natural safety features provide the opportunity to shoot legally and safely.  Let’s not ruin it with trash and rogue behavior!

Special kudos and thank you to the Benton County Sheriff’s Department for initiating this annual event and providing a great barbeque lunch!

Thank you to all our supporting businesses for their donations to prizes and treats.  The volunteers really appreciated it!

After the main cleanup, a 2nd cleanup happened out by Alsea Falls. This wasn’t target trash this was just out right illegal dumping. BCSO, BLM and a couple of our volunteers hauled out a whole flatbed trucks worth of household trash and tires!

Every person in these photos played an important part in making this day a success and a lot of fun.  Each one asks that you keep it clean by packing out what you brought in.  No one here wants to have to do this again next year!
