National public lands day

The Bureau Land Management will celebrate on Saturday National Public Lands Day. A time for all to come together and preserve wild lands. Lands of which we share through recreation and scenic routes for drivers.

The National Public Lands is offering free admission and free lunch for people who would like to come out and volunteer. Volunteering would help serve to plant new trees and help clean areas, for a better, cleaner areas throughout the land.

The Pocatello Field Office is offering free transportation out to the site, Goodenough Campgrounds in McCammon. Transportation will leave at 9a.m. BLM’s field officer, Dave Pacioretty is part of the event tomorrow and hopes to rebuild some of the major areas.

“Over time, the camp ground is just loved to death. The tendency is just to camp right on the stream bank. And that has really impacted the stream bank where it’s actually become wider. And you lose the depth of the stream at that time which also impacts the fish. Another problem we have is people like to build their own dams. That prevents the fish from moving up the stream. So it’s education and some science. So what we’re trying to do first is help the fish. And then look at other options we have for people with recreation,” saidPacioretty.
