Saturday the Bureau of Land Management held a large-scale trash cleanup of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. At Least five hundred volunteers participated in the cleanup efforts.

This event was all for the 25th anniversary of Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. Event organizer, Amanda Hoffman said this was one of the most extensive trash cleanups in Idaho.

"We have picked up 360 cubic tons of trash in the past two years," said Hoffman.

"It's like people use this for their own personal trash can, " said Nathan Bentley, Volunteer.

Volunteers picked up items like shotgun shells, a printer, a car door, and a mattress to name a few of the things.

"If you come out to go shooting bring a trash bag and clean up after yourself and maybe take a little extra with you," said Jared Tanner, Volunteer.
