California Land Management (CLM) staged two successful Get Outdoors Day events this past Saturday, June 14th. The first event was the Huntington Lake Spring Clean. Held on the Sierra National Forest - a total of over 40 volunteers (including Sierra National Forest Assistant Recreation Officer, Sue Burkindine, pictured at right) picked up trash and micro litter around the lake. CLM also presented three wonderful speakers while the group enjoyed lunch (CLM provided a great BBQ) and then had several additional interpretive programs throughout the day. Several Forest Service resorts and other local businesses donated prizes for the raffle and co-sponsored the event.
The second event was the 4th annual Upper Kern River Clean Up Day. This event - held on the Sequoia National Forest - also focuses on trash and litter clean up in the wild and scenic Kern River Canyon. California Land Management co-sponsors this clean up day with the Forest Service. Several local Kern River rafting companies assisted in the effort and - with CLM - sponsored lunch for all of the participants. This year set a new record for the number of volunteers involved - and a great time was had by all.
Both of these events were co-sponsored by the National Forest Recreation Association and the Take Pride in America program. www.clm-services.com
