SELIGMAN, Ariz. - Volunteers are encouraged to participate this Saturday (July 28) in an important cleanup project that enhances wildlife habitat and also helps ensure continued public access to the area.
Participants will meet at 8 a.m. this Saturday at Pica Camp to receive information and supplies (gloves, bags, tools) from the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Pica Camp is located west of Seligman. Take State Route 66 to milepost 123.5, turn north through the gate and go two miles. Volunteers then will use their own vehicles (or carpool) to disperse across the large ranch and search for litter while exploring the area. After spending the day in the field, bring your trash back to Pica Camp where it can be transferred to Game and Fish to haul away.
Camping is available at the ranch or you can just come up for the day. Along with cleaning the environment, this cleanup project will help maintain public access on or across private property to public lands, and help maintain good relations between landowners and the public. Note: The Boquillas Ranch does not allow ATVs of any kind.
