ST. GEORGE — The Bureau of Land Management St. George Field Office will partner with the public to beautify the area’s public lands on Saturday from 8-11 a.m. BLM and volunteers will work together to clean up illegal dumping and target shooting sites in beautiful Warner Valley.
The project is suitable for children, but those under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Outdoor work gloves are required. Officials also recommend volunteers bring ample water, snacks, sunscreen, hats and layered clothing. Event organizers are also seeking volunteers who are willing to use personal trucks to haul trash.
About the BLM
The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of subsurface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under a mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
