Polaris Urging Help to Re-Open Areas of the Imperial Sand Dunes

--()--Thanks to the tireless efforts of the American Sand Association (aSa) and numerous volunteers, 40,000 acres of currently closed dunes will be reopened for OHV recreation. The aSa is working on a volunteer effort, in conjunction with the BLM, to start the process of removing the closure stakes in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. More specifically, the small central closure near Gecko Campground and the 160 acres in Buttercup. The Buttercup project will also call for assistance with the reinstallation of the critical habitat closure near the US/Mexico border.

DATES: May 2 – Volunteer registration from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
May 3 – 5:30 a.m. briefing, volunteer registration
TIME: Due to the excessive heat during this time, we expect to be finished by 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be provided afterwards.
LOCATION: Gecko Campground & Buttercup Ranger Station, Glamis, Calif.
OHVs, Quads, SxS, Trucks, Trailers, EZ-Ups, Goggles, Gloves, Shovels, Rope, Tie-Downs and Moving Blankets.
