The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management and SOLVE (Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism) invite the public to come help clean up public lands at the 3nd Annual Bald Mountain Forest Clean-up event on Saturday, June 10th, 2017. We ask you to meet at the Sheridan Peak kiosk on Bald Mountain Road at 8:30 a.m., to pick up trash large and small. We will be serving BBQ Hot Dogs, chips and water for all volunteers beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Volunteers should wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants, work gloves and sturdy shoes or work boots. Bring rain gear, just in case! Come get your hands dirty, meet some wonderful people and help keep our forests clean!

Since 2015, volunteers have removed over 15 tons of garbage and over 100 tires from the forest. Although a large amount of garbage has been removed over the last two years, dump sites in the forest continue to be a major issue. Please join us for this year's event!

Unsightly garbage is harmful to plants and animals. It can pollute water sources and promote the growth of noxious weeds. Dumping on private forest lands has resulted in many land owners closing their lands to public access. Make a difference and join us on June 10!

Please remember to report illegal dumping! It can help make a difference.
