Volunteers needed to clean up Table Mesa Road

While exploring Table Mesa Road last weekend we found one unsightly mess left by Shooters.There's probaly 5 large slide off truck container loads there in the shooting area.Why these people do this is beyond me.If we don't keep this clean thru mutual efforts with the State and Federal agencys,it will get closed someday.
Anyone thats been to Table Mesa knows its a great place to wheel and explore for miles.They have a rec area now for camping and shooting but garbage is out of control.Beyond that area is open country with ghosttowns mines and trails.At least its contained to the rec area so far.
I've enclosed a e-mail frome the State about a joint effort with them for a clean-up 0n March 10.We can sure use your help on cleaning this area up.
Table Mesa Road is located 21 miles north of Bell Road on 1-17.When you reach it the clean-up will be about 2 miles +/- in or they sound have signs.
Hope to see you there.
Mike

Public Lands Day Event Seeks Volunteers to Clean Table Mesa
---------------------------------------------------------------


(PHOENIX, Arizona)— The U.S. Bureau of Land Management and its partners seek volunteers for the annual clean-up of the Table Mesa Recreation Area north of Phoenix Arizona. The Arizona Virtual Jeep Club and Tri Star Recycling are sponsoring the March 10th event as an official activity for National Public Lands Day.



The Table Mesa Recreation Area is located just west of Interstate 17 at Table Mesa Road and is a popular destination for off-road enthusiasts and recreational target shooters. Sadly, not all users pack out trash or shooting debris, leaving the public lands littered with everything from garbage to electronics. Thanks to BLM partners the Arizona Virtual Jeep Club and Tri Star Recycling, volunteers are being organized for a four-hour clean-up that culminates with giveaways and free T-shirts. Volunteers are asked to arrive on March 10th at 8:00 a.m. with work gloves, a hat, sun screen, drinking water and snacks/picnic lunch. The sponsors of the Public Lands Day event will provide trash bags and recycle bins for the proper disposal of items gathered.



Other sponsors include: LetzRoll Off Road Racing; Absolute Off Road; 4Wheelers; and Daystar Products, many of whom provide prizes for volunteers. For more information, contact: Mike Bradley at 623-206-4037 (infantry_158@yahoo.com) or Park Ranger Jason Blomberg, at 623-580-5572 (tablemesaranger@gmail.com).

I'd absolutely be there if I still lived in the Valley. I'll go out to one of our more popular areas with a few trash bags on the 10th to show solidarity.

Over 200 people showed up.We hauled out 160 cubic yards of shooting trash in 4 hours.Wasn't easy as plastic bottles had to have rocks and dirt poured out of them to bag them.Stuff stuck in trees and bushes.It was a huge success as most of it was picked up.
