In preparation for outdoor summer recreation, join Friends of Hyalite for its annual Spring Clean-Up Day on Saturday, June 3rd beginning at noon. This is a chance to help prepare one of Bozeman’s favorite recreational areas for sun-soaked adventures. Volunteers will pick up trash, clean out fire rings, and do whatever else needs to be done to spruce up Hyalite for the summer season. Bring gloves if you have them, dress for a day outside, and don’t forget the bear spray! Tools and trash bags will be provided. The afternoon of clean-up will wrap with a volunteer appreciation gathering with food and refreshments.
Friends of Hyalite organizes this 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, Friends and volunteers have removed more than 10,000 pounds of garbage and recyclables from trailheads, parking lots, campsites and along roads. Clean-Up days are held before the road opens in May and on the day before rifle season begins in October.
Friends of Hyalite is a nonprofit organization dedicated to stewardship of, access to, and support for year-round recreation in Hyalite Canyon. Learn more about their efforts at www.hyalite.org. Follow on social media for current happenings and future announcements. •
