Earth Day at Tillamook State Forest. Browns Camp Pit!
April 22, 2017, 9 AM – 1 PM
Team spirit and team effort as we join SOLVE and ODF/Tillamook State Forest for Earth Day! We will be cleaning up the Browns Camp gravel pit where a lot of target shooting takes place. If we have a good turn out, we’ll also spiff up some nearby areas.
Meeting point at ODOT Sandshed on south side of Oregon Highway 6 at milepost 33. Look for the sand barn and dumpsters.

There’s no better “Pit Crew” than this crew right here! They came out in the rain to face a huge pit with a huge amount of trash. Against the odds of poor weather and a tremendous sized pit full of trash, they dug right in and got the job done. On Earth Day! Thanks to SOLVE for the inspiration on Earth Day! Thanks to Ore Dept of Forestry/Tillamook State Forest for all the help, bags, disposal, snacks and more! Thanks, Everyone who came to help, for such a nice dedicated effort! We did it! And it was well done!
The pit was closed to shooting because of construction work lately. It will remain closed for a while (we’ll post when they open it again). Since it was closed, we weren’t allowed to do any shooting after the cleanup. I know most of us were disappointed in that but all were just as happy to head home, dry off, warm up and soak those tired bones in a bath and a beer. You deserve it!
There were 16 of us out there today. That includes TNL staff and ODF. We met and talked with many others who stopped to inquire about our efforts.
Again, nice work and thank you all!
