Valley To Spruce Up Saturday

highway-clean-up

Jackson Hole’s 45th Annual Spring Clean-Up Day takes place Saturday. Each spring Jackson Hole non-profit organizations, businesses, Wyoming Adopt-A-Highway agencies, and hundreds of volunteers hit the streets and highways throughout Jackson Hole with garbage bags in hand to clean up debris left behind as the winter snow melts. Volunteers will be deployed from the Jackson Town Square, the Wilson Community Center and the Hoback Store at 9:00 am.  Later, Clean-up Day Coordinator Bob Norton says trucks, provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation, the Town of Jackson, Evans Construction, and Westwood Curtis will collect bags of roadside trash left by the clean-up volunteers.  Norton says the objective is to pick up all the winter accumulation of litter along the streets, roads and pathways in Teton County.  He says each year, the organizers welcome groups to come out and help pick up all the accumulation of trash.  Norton says it is always fun to hear stories about the most unusual thing the teams found along the roads in their clean-up efforts.  The event begins with coffee and pastries at 9:00 am and will be followed by a free barbecue lunch for volunteers on Town Square from 11:30 am-12:30 pm.  Compostable bags are being distributed to homeowners for their organic yard waste. This marks the 45th year the community clean-up event is being conducted in Jackson Hole.

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
