Volunteers Clean Up Desert

Volunteers from the Havasu 4 Wheelers picking up tons of trash on  public lands on the eastern edge of Lake Havasu City.

“We owe the Havasu 4 Wheelers, corporate sponsors, and all the participants a huge thank you,” said BLM Lake Havasu Field Manager Ramone McCoy. “The area cleaned up off of Paseo Del Oro Drive and Bison Road is one of the problem areas where underage drinking, target shooting, and illegal dumping occurred.”

The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
