    Default St. Helen Area forest clean up.

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

    Date: Saturday, April 24th.

    Time: registration from 8am-9am, We'll work until probably 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.

    Don't worry, there will be plenty of trash for everyone that comes to be able to pick up.

    Everything is arranged, except for people to come help.

    I wished I had gone on the wheeling events I could have gone on the past 2 weekends and not have bothered to try to put this cleanup together.

    This will most likely to the last year for this.

    I'm about done.

    One of the events WAS a clean up, so I'm off the hook.

    Anyway, I know how discouraging this seems. Don't let a lack of turnout get you down. Just keep plugging away at it. It is still a very good project to do. It will grow.

    I can't stress enough how much these kind of events bring us positive PR. The Two Trackers cleanup on the west side of the state has helped open doors with the Forest Service.

    For those of you that can make it, please do so. It really does make a difference. Not only for the PR it generates but because its the right thing to do.

    A lot of people see a problem and say "Someone ought to do something about that". Well, be that someone. Talk somebody else into being one of those 'someones' too. I did it. Bruce is doing it. Now, how about you?
