EVANSTON—On Saturday, May 16, there will be a landowner appreciation lunch and litter clean-up day in Evanston and the public is invited. The sponsors of the event are 307 Long Range, Wyoming Sportsman for Fish and Wildlife (WYSFW), and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD).
These groups are coming together to recognize landowners involved with the Game and Fish Private Lands Public Wildlife (PLPW) Program, specifically Medicine Butte and Bear River Divide Habitat Management Areas, and Woodruff Narrows and Sulfur Creek Habitat Access Areas near Evanston. These landowners are being honored for their contributions to providing outdoor recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat. The litter clean-up on private and public land is to demonstrate stewardship and concern for the environment.
Volunteers are asked to meet in the parking lot of Sports World at 8:30 a.m. for the litter clean-up. Organizers are asking for volunteers to bring pickups and small trailers, gloves, water, rakes and appropriate clothing. Garbage bags will be provided and a hearty thanks in advance to the volunteers in this clean-up effort. There will be no charge for dumping the trash compliments of the Uinta County Landfill.
After the clean-up, a lunch to recognize landowners and thank volunteers will be provided by WGFD and the participating organizations at The Gun Room, also in Evanston.
