We are looking for support from volunteers to clean up litter at Flagstaff Trailheads. With our mild winter, access has continued at popular areas and litter is becoming problematic for wildlife communities. Litter is fatal to wildlife on OSMP. Leaving litter with food smells (e.g. pizza boxes, sports bars or gum wrappers) causes bears to stop fearing humans and increases conflict, ultimately leading to those animals having to be euthanized. Songbirds and raptors digestive tracks cannot process litter which causes death – ultimately decreasing populations. Birds get tangled in discarded fishing line or hooks. Please pass on the importance of disposing the litter in waste bins or pack it out by following the basic Leave No Trace ethics when recreating.Volunteers Registered: 10
