Friends of Hyalite Seeks Volunteers for Annual Spring Clean Up Day
On Saturday, May 11, the public is invited to join Friends of Hyalite and the Bozeman Ranger District for the annual Hyalite Spring Cleanup Day. Friends of Hyalite, a local non-profit dedicated to stewardship of, access to, and support for year round recreation in Hyalite Canyon, organizes a bi-annual Cleanup in Spring and Fall with help from the Bozeman Ranger District and the City of Bozeman. Over the past decade they have removed more than 10,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from trailheads, parking lots, campsites and along roads. “We encourage anybody who enjoys recreating in Hyalite Canyon to join us on the 11th. Together, we can keep Hyalite enjoyable for all” says Hilary Eisen, president of the Friends of Hyalite board of directors.
Volunteers should meet at the large parking area at the bottom of Hyalite Canyon at 12:00 pm on the 11th. Friends of Hyalite and the Forest Service will supply tools, garbage bags, and gloves but volunteers should be prepared with clothing that will keep them warm and dry during a spring day outside in the mountains. The Clean Up Day will wrap up around 4:00 pm with a volunteer appreciation picnic sponsored by Schnee’s. For more information see http://hyalite.org/what-we-do/clean-up-days.
