Volunteers Needed for April 6 Table Mesa Clean-Up

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

The BLM is asking for volunteers to help clean the Table Mesa Recreation Area, north of Phoenix.  This area is very popular with recreational target shooters, off-highway vehicle riders, hikers, and others.  Illegal dumping, as well as debris left behind by recreationists, has resulted in the need to set aside a morning to clean the area.  Volunteers are critical to keeping this area an attractive and safe place to recreate.  Target shooters have enthusiastically joined in past volunteer efforts that the BLM has hosted at Table Mesa and the NRA anticipates that the April 6th clean up will be no exception. 

Table Mesa Park Ranger Jason Blomberg is spearheading this latest clean-up. Maricopa County Solid Waste is providing dumpsters.  The Arizona Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition and Black Canyon Trail Coalition are donating labor, equipment, and supplies. 

Where:  Meet at the entrance to Table Mesa - I-17; exit Table Mesa Road

When:  April 6

How Long:  8:00am – noon

What to Bring:  water, gloves, rakes, sunblock and hat

Contact:   Rem Hawes (623-580-5530)

If you enjoy recreating in Table Mesa for informal shooting, hiking or other activities, please set aside the morning of April 6th and volunteer to help the BLM and others in this clean-up effort.  Please be sure to wear a NRA hat, t-shirt or other clothing item to let folks know that you are a NRA member.
