Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012 9A Fees waived for Public Lands Day Day-use fees will be waived for anyone visiting U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreation areas in the Sacramento Dis- trict and across the nation Sept. 29, in celebration of Na- tional Public Lands Day. Fees normally charged at boat launch ramps and swim- ming beaches will be waived. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for special- ized facilities such as group picnic shelters. Volunteers who choose to pitch in at one of USACE Sacramento District's Nation- al Public Lands Day activities will also receive a fee-free coupon good for one day of day-use or admission fees at any participating federal agency park, forest or recre- ation area. The coupon is valid for one year from date of issue. Volunteers at Sacramento District sites will take part in tree planting, trail mainte- nance, restoring recreation areas, trash pickup, removing invasive species and non-na- tive plants and improving wildlife habitats. "National Public Lands Day is a great time to celebrate the outdoors with family, meet other outdoor enthusiasts and take positive action to show some love for America's pub- lic lands," said Jonathan Friedman, senior district nat- ural resources specialist, US- ACE Sacramento District. In 2011, more than 12,000 vol- unteers worked approximate- ly 50,000 hours to remove more than 1,500 tires, clear litter and debris from 1,475 miles of shoreline, build 100 miles of trails, Mad plant some 1,000 trees and shrubs at USACE-op- erated sites across the nation. Volunteering in National Public Lands Day is one way to answer President Obama's call to service and play a role in supporting America's Great Outdoors Initiative, an effort to promote the conservation of outdoor spaces and reconnect Americans to the outdoors, USACE has been involved with National Public Lands Day since its inception in 1994 and has consistently been one of the event's largest providers of sites and volunteers. To locate National Public Lands Day events near you, visit the Sacramento District recreation website at http:// www.spk.usace.army,mil/ Locations/SacramentoDistrict Parks.aspx or visit public landsday.org. Students, families clean near Spaniel Creek On Sept. 14, families of 19 students from Plumes Char- ter School's Quincy Learning Center helped pick up trash along Spanish Creek. This is the third year Quin- cy students picked up trash near the heavily used Oak- land Camp rope swing park- ing area the biggest turnout of students and families to date. Thirty participants collected five pounds of recyclables and 15 pounds of trash, considerably less than collected in previ- ous years. It was a beautiful day to be outside working to keep the Upper Feather River Watershed clean. Plumas Charter School stu- dents from Greenville and IVA also participated again this year. In Greenville, 20 volun- teers picked up about 35 pounds of trash and 15 pounds of recy- clables from along Wolf Creek. Plumes Charter student creek clean-ups during Septem- ber were part of the Great Sier- ra River Cleanup, an annual event spearheaded by The Sier- ra Nevada Conservancy. This year's effort resulted in more than 90,000 pounds of trash removed from the creeks and rivers of virtually every watershed in the Sierras.
