Mountain Lakes Cleanup Event Saturday

SIERRA NATIONAL FOREST – You are invited to celebrate National Public Lands Day in your own backyard by participating in the Bare Island and Iron Lakes clean-up on Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8 a.m.

“They are the most beautiful lakes you’ve never heard of, says organizer Deanna Wulff. “Hike up to Bare Island Lake and Iron Lakes from Grizzly Pass. It’s a two-mile stroll on a rugged trail to a scenic emerald lake and the blue topaz gems around it.”

The area has incredible scenery and warm water, says Deanna, but also a bit of a mess.

“Big coolers have been left near the lake shore,” she says. “This may take several trips and backpacking equipment to haul out. After the lake clean-up, we’ll swim, carry-on, possibly hike to another lake or enjoy our own cooler contents and relax!”

Participants are asked to meet at Nelder Grove Campground at 8 a.m. to carpool.
