Volunteers are needed! If you would like to help, SIHA will have trash bags and gloves available outside at the
Community Building in Stanley from 9am to 12pm on June 9th
. Thanks are extended to the City of Stanley and
Idaho Transportation Department for providing supplies. You can join the event for any amount of time you are
available and if you would like to pick up supplies early, or to participate at a time more convenient for you, you
can contact Lin at the Stanley Museum to make arrangements: [email protected] or 208.774.3517.
SIHA will be keeping track of which areas each volunteer is planning to help clean up so that as much ground can
be covered as possible. Once volunteers have completed their service and gathered any and all garbage, the City
of Stanley will be accepting the bagged garbage in the dumpster at the Community Building.
The Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association and the Sawtooth Society continue to work to reduce the
impact of visitors on the Sawtooth National Recreation Area through clean-up events like this one. An end-of –
season dispersed camping clean-up is being planned for September with several other area partners. Increased
use in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area is noticeable from what is left behind. “We are excited to partner
with other organizations, and the wider community, to keep the SNRA from being loved to death,” said Lin Gray,
SIHA’s executive director, “It is great that folks are visiting the area to recreate and we are working on other
efforts to educate visitors about responsible recreating. Together we can have a big impact on reducing the
trash that ends up on the roadside, in dispersed campgrounds, and throughout the SNRA.”
