The Campbell County Observer is asking for volunteers for organizing a cleanup of the BLM land on Union Chapel Road west of Sleepy Hollow. “We do this every year,” owner Nicholas De Laat said. “After hunting season is a good time to get all the land picked up so that we can keep using it.”
Many people from the community use the land, which has a unique value of being BLM land but leased to the BLM by a local rancher. Over time, trash, shells, and carcasses are left from the shooters and hunters.
“Most of the people I see out thee pick up after themselves. I’m glad that the Observer organizes this cleanup to clean up after the very few who don’t. I don’t want to lose my access to that land,” said Greg Sakonski of Sleepy Hollow.
The Campbell County Observer will provide trash bags for use. “We are looking for you to bring a truck to load the garbage in, get an old utility bill, and we will clean up the area and take the garbage to the dump,” Mr. De Laat said. “We are looking for volunteers to help us keep this land kept up.”
