The Friends of Organ Mountains Desert Peaks and Cruceno Cleanup teamed up, on October 22nd, for Trash Talkin Thursdays to pick up litter and illegal dumping at the Sierra Vista Trailhead. Ten volunteers attended and after one hour collected 7 bags of trash and a bowling ball. Thanks to everyone making our public lands a cleaner place to visit.
If you identify illegal dump sites in the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument, contact the Friends of Organ Mountains Desert Peaks Contact Page.
