There will be a huge BLM supported cleanup effort at the Table Mesa area.
There are several clubs involved, and not just OHV. I hope we can make a strong showing as a club.
Here is some more info from AZ-Ted of the AZ XterraClub (http://www.azxterraclub.com):
Where and When:
The cleanup will be held at Table Mesa Rd (exit 236) on the WEST side of I-17. Approx. 1 mile in from the exit is where we will be meeting (near the fenced off area). The cleanup is scheduled to go from 9:00am to 1:00pm. But, people are free to come and go as they need. At 1:00 we will have lunch, and there will be some giveaways (everyone that volunteers will be given an entry ticket for the giveaways).

This event is shaping up to be a good size cleanup. There are many different 4x4 clubs that will be there: AZXC, AZVJC, AZFJ, Arizona K5 Blazers, TTORA, Zuks of AZ, Higher Ground 4x4, alloffroadaz, and several more clubs. There will also be several ATV/UTV clubs, a few dirtbike clubs, a mountain bike club (MBAA), a HAM radio club (4x4HAM.com), and even a radio-controlled car club (RCCrawlers.com). I have also posted up on several local hunting/shooting websites as well.
The BLM will be there, as will their volunteer group called the OHV Ambassadors. The Arizona Xterra Club has donated 10 boxes of the heavy-duty contractor’s trashbags, and M&I bank has donated a bunch of cases of bottled water. The folks from TreadyLightly! have donated some swag for the giveaway at the end of the cleanup, and one of their master Tread Trainers will be on hand as well. Trasharoo has donated one of their really cool offroad garbage bag holders. Over the next few weeks, I will be working with additional local companies to get more donations for the giveaway.
I am talking with the Chris @ the BLM to get the lunch coordinated (they are no longer allowed to buy food for cleanups, but they have some partner organizations that should be able to step up and buy the food). I am also getting a flyer made up to be distributed to all interested parties.
If you have a business, and would like to donate to the cleanup (we could use gloves, food/snacks, and giveaway items), please PM me here or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm really excited about this cleanup, and I know that we can make a really good impact out at Table Mesa. Thanks for your support, and I look forward to seeing you all there.
