Julimar Gets a Cleanup

22-Nov-2011

Trail bike riders teamed up with four wheel drive enthusiasts to clean up several areas within the Julimar State Forest on the weekend.

The cleanup day was coordinated by the Recreational Trailbike Riders’ Association of WA and involved members of the association as well as the Four Wheel Drive Club of WA.

DEC District Senior Ranger, Paul Udinga, lent a hand and also cooked up a sausage sizzle to feed the volunteer workers.

Thirteen wrecked cars were pulled from the bush and brought to central locations where they will be removed by a scrap metal merchant and dozens of garbage bags were filled with bottles, cans and smaller rubbish and removed.

The idea for the cleanup day came from RTRA member, Mike Klenner, who rides regularly in the Julimar Forest and wanted to make a contribution to improve the area. A few phone calls and emails later and a group of willing volunteers was assembled.

The hope is that by cleaning up the area people will be more likely to take their own rubbish home with them in the future.
