Annual Fall Clean Up Day

Volunteers will gather at the Hyalite Day Use Area to participate in Friends of Hyalite’s annual Fall Hyalite Clean Up Day. Friends of Hyalite, a local non-profit dedicated to stewardship of, access to, and support for year round recreation in Hyalite Canyon, organizes a bi-annual Clean Up in Spring and Fall with help from the Custer-Gallatin National Forest and the City of Bozeman. Over the past decade they have removed more than 10,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from trailheads, parking lots, campsites and along roads. “We encourage anybody who enjoys recreating in Hyalite Canyon to join us on the 14th. Together, we can keep Hyalite enjoyable for all” says Hilary Eisen, president of the Friends of Hyalite board of directors. “The cleanup events in Hyalite make a big difference with keeping the area clean and enjoyable to all who visit, and this fall we’re excited to also work on some stewardship projects with Friends of Hyalite, like adding gravel and fire rings at popular picnic spots” says Corey Lewellen, District Ranger for the Bozeman Ranger District. “I hope lots of people come out to support this great event.” Volunteers should meet at the Hyalite Day Use Area – the parking area by the reservoir – at 12:30 pm on the 14th. Friends of Hyalite and the Forest Service will supply tools, garbage bags, and gloves but volunteers should be prepared with clothing that will keep them warm and dry during a day outside in the mountains. The Clean Up Day will wrap up around 4:00 pm with a volunteer appreciation picnic sponsored by Red Tractor Pizza and Outlaw Brewing.
