The first four pictures show Fran Hull of BLM and her team at the location of the burned down trailer. Note that the heavy metal support frame and the metal siding of the burned down trailer had already been hauled away by Arnold Coronado two days before. Arnold had also hauled away two abandoned cars, two small pickup trucks, and one intact abandoned trailer from other areas.

The entire cleanup crew of volunteers hauled a total of 16-20 pickup and long bed trailer loads to the Fernley Transfer Station!

We had a number of pickup trucks and the BLM 2 ton truck to haul trash. We also had long bed trailers from Andy Quinn, Steve Knight, Karen and Vince Giron, and the Fernley Department of Parks and Recreation.

The first four pictures show the cleanup effort at one location. There were three more major trash areas within the Protective Easement and several major trash areas nearby that were cleaned up. There were between 4 – 6 teams who made two trips to the Transfer Station.
