On April 26, 2008, California Land Management hosted its 11th annual "Spring Clean" at Bass Lake on the Sierra National Forest. This community based program involves many local volunteers in picking up litter from around Bass Lake - a popular recreation site east of Fresno, CA. This year well over 80 citizens participated.
Prizes were awarded to those people who picked up the most trash. Awards were donated by over two dozen local businesses - as well as California Land Management.
California Land Management provided lunch for all who came. Sierra National Forest staff also participated with the local District Ranger, Dave Martin, and Forest Supervisor Ed Cole (pictured at right) both in attendance. Other sponsors included the national Take Pride in America organization, the National Forest Recreation Association, and tNational Get Outdoors Day.
This year, California Land Management is also planning on launching a new event - patterned after the Bass Lake Spring Clean - at Huntington Lake (also on the Sierra National Forest). This event is scheduled for June 14, 2008 - National Get Outdoors Day.
