Cleanup Day on Shoshone River Saturday
Written by wendycorr on July 25, 2019
If you’d like to help beautify the area around Cody, you’ve got a chance to pitch in this Saturday on the South Fork.
The Bureau of Land Management invites residents to a community workday this Saturday, July 27, at the Andy Martin Hill River Access along the Shoshone River southwest of Cody. Volunteers and BLM staff will work to remove old wooden posts, barbed wire fences and t-posts for public safety, and install a new entrance sign, information kiosk and two picnic tables.
Rick Tryder, BLM outdoor recreation planner in the Cody Field Office, says the Andy Martin Hill River Access has historically received little use due to limited accessibility. He says Saturday’s work day will improve the public’s recreational experiences, including time spent fishing and hunting, and also provide a unique social opportunity.
Anyone interested in helping can meet at 8 a.m. at the BLM Cody Field Office to caravan to the recreation site. They are asked to wear durable work shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather, and bring work gloves, sunscreen, lunch and water. Hand tools will be provided.
