Carson City, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District, Sierra Front Field Office has launched the “Adopt-a-Space” Program to combat illegal dumping on public lands. Two open houses about the new program will be held on Thursday, August 21, from 4-6 p.m., and Saturday, August 23, from 9-11 a.m., at the Carson City District Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road in Carson City. RSVP’s for the open houses are requested.
“This program facilitates creating public land stewards who will assist the BLM with keeping the public land free of litter so that all may enjoy,” said Leon Thomas, Field Manager. “We are looking for individuals, groups, schools, businesses, organizations and anyone who is interested in participating in this program.”
BLM staff will work closely with volunteer groups to guide them through the process of adopting a space. Pre-determined spots have been designated for the program. However, if there is an area in need of clean-up, BLM will work with individuals and groups to get it nominated and adopted.
“The BLM has combated illegal dumping on public lands for years. Not only is household trash being dumped, but other items including abandoned cars and boats, refrigerators, tires, hazardous materials and trigger trash,” Thomas stated.
