    Default Cleaning up St. Helen Motor Sports Area

    Brewmenn says, "I spent a few hours walking around the St. Helen Motor sports area and found quite a bit of garbage. A few shingle piles, some old dump sites, and quite a bit of droped garbage.

    How would we go about cleaning it up? Is there any state programs to get money to pay for a dumpster and disposal fees?

    Do you think we could get a decent sized crew up there next spring sometime? Maybe we could even convince someone from the area with a dump truck and a small end loader to help with the shingle piles.

    There will be an "Adopt a Forest" clean up at the St Helen Motorsports area and the surrounding area (Richfield township)

    Date: Saturday, April 25th.

    Time: registration from 8am-9am, We'll work until the 30 yard dumpster is full. Hopefully by about 4pm.

    Meeting place: The township park in St Helen. 10415 Airport Rd, St Helen MI 48656.

    What to Bring:
    Work gloves
    steel rakes
    shovels
    Rain gear
    Pickup truck or Jeep/SUV with a utility trailer. Most known trash sites are in fairly open areas so you don't have to worry about scratches. Some sites may be accessible to 2 wheel drive vehicles, some will require 4 wheel drive.

    Lunch will be provided.

    A few other things I'm looking for help with:
    I'd like to have coffee and doughnuts in the morning at registration. Anyone want to help provide that?
    Heavy equipment. I have 1 skid steer lined up. I'd like to have a second "end loader" type machine if possible. Just keep in mind that we'll be using it for removing plies of old shingles dumped in the woods, volunteer at your own risk.
    I'd like to get some fliers put up at some of the businesses around there to try to get some of the local people out to help. If anyone can help with that let me know. I put together a flier but it's on my computer at work so I'll try to get that posted tomorrow.

    Note that I'm posting this on several sites so there may be multiple discussions going on about this.

    Site admin: please move and/or sticky as you deem appropriate.

    Bruce, I will still need to get with Jeremy, but it is looking like I will be bringing a skid steer with me.
