(Link to site below) Friends of Organ Mountains - Desert Peaks and the Bureau of Land Management are partnering to clean up an illegal dumping site on public lands north of Las Cruces off of Doña Ana Road. Because this dump site is full of glass and other trash objects that can be harmful to young children, only volunteers 12 years of age and older will be allowed to volunteer. This will be hard but rewarding work - shoveling trash and carrying buckets to the truck as well as stooping and bending repeatedly. Attire recommendations: boots (hiking), leather gloves, hat, long pants, long sleeve shirt, sunglasses. Don't forget water and sunscreen. If you have 5-gallon buckets, flat or rounded shovels, and rakes, bring those too.
