Government Draw cleanup set for later this month

The Fremont County ATV Association, Rim Rock Riders 4-H Club and Bureau of Land Management Lander Field Office will hold a cleanup of public lands at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 30, in the Government Draw area east of Lander. Volunteers should bring snacks and gloves if available. Water will be provided. To reach the cleanup site, turn east from Lyons Valley Road onto Coal Mine Road, cross the Little Popo Agie River and continue on Coal Mine Road to the staging area adjacent to the cattle guard. Government Draw is enjoyed by many for activities including target shooting and motorcycle and ATV riding. Cartridges and targets are often left behind and the area is used by some as an illegal dumping ground. This will be the fourth time the group has cleaned up this popular recreation area. Last year, 23 association members collected and hauled 3,700 pounds of trash that had been illegally dumped. #county10 #news
