The City is reminding the community about the cleanup in the desert along North Oatman and Silver Creek Roads, east of the Bullhead Parkway on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 am. The forecast for the day is clear with a high of 86 degrees. If you are interested in helping to beautify our desert, please join us at the northeast and southeast corners of the Bullhead Parkway and Silver Creek Road.
Volunteers can stay as long as they like. There is no specific commitment in time required. Every little bit of help will be appreciated. Civic-minded groups are welcome. People with ATV’s are encouraged to participate, because we do have need for the ability to get down into the wash along Silver Creek Road.
A lot of equipment is being provided for hauling away the trash that will be removed, but you are asked to bring along such things as gloves or anything you can easily carry from site to site and that would be useful in gathering debris. Be sure to start hydrating the day before and wear comfortable shoes. The City will be providing water and pizza, to those that volunteer.
The Desert Clean Up is being organized through a joint effort of the City of Bullhead City, Arizona Game & Fish, Bureau of Land Management, Mohave County’s ERASE program, Golden Vertex, and Republic Services.
If you have an interest, please call Janice Paul at 928-763-0122 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays for more information.
