The Bureau of Land Management Cody Field Office and the Casper-based Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education youth group recently worked together to clean up public lands in Oregon Basin south of Cody, Wyo., and at the Five Springs Falls Campground east of Lovell, Wyo.

Eleven young people and their adult leaders joined BLM employees in a scenic cove in Oregon Basin to clean up tremendous amounts of trash. The energetic group removed about 900 pounds of trash in just a few hours.

The Five Springs Falls Campground, 22 miles east of Lovell, was the CORE group’s home base for the week. There they replaced deteriorating parking bollards and removed trash.

This is CORE’s 15th year. The group complete volunteer projects for the BLM, Forest Service and National Park Service, including an annual trip to Yellowstone National Park.
