Almost 100 volunteers turned out Saturday to help pick up trash and remove debris on Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest lands along state Route 410.
Groups went to about a dozen locations on the state Route 410 corridor and in the Wilkeson-Carbonado area near state Route 165.
“We picked up approximately 62 yards of garbage, two 25 yard dumpsters and approximately another 10 pickup and trailer loads,” wrote Ian J. Canaan, a forest law enforcement officer in an e-mail.
“We removed a camper, engine block, household furniture, propane tanks, paint cans, car parts and almost anything you can think of,” he added.
When weighed at the landfill, the cleaned up items weighed three tons.
In addition to volunteers, the effort also had support from the Washington State Patrol, state Department of Natural Resources, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife as well as civilian staff of the Forest Service and a couple of other Forest Service law enforcement officers.
