BEND, OR -- The non-profit Discover Your Forest organization is teaming up today with hundreds of volunteers from REI and the Deschutes National Forest to clean up the China Butte area. Amy Jensen with Discover Your Forest, says the Cabin Butte Pit and Horse Butte Trailhead areas need to cleaned up. She says, "There's some citizen-made shooting lanes and just kind of a large accumulation of trash, debris and bullet casings everywhere. So they decided that would be a great opportunity where we could use a couple hundred volunteers to combine their efforts." Jensen says the volunteers would also put up rail fencing and de-commission the illegal shooting areas. Jensen says today’s project will help encourage native plant regrowth and increase recreation opportunities.
