Located in Fort McDowel, Sugar Loaf is a local shooting range that desperately needed some love. We had over 80 friends, family members, and Wild Keepers volunteer to pick up litter in the area. This cleanup was unlike any other because there was a staggering amount of trash. Bullet shells, clay pigeons, car parts, soda cans, and big items (such as water heaters, TVs, and computers) were everywhere. Even though we picked up over 4,500 lbs of trash, you wouldn't be able to tell that we were there. But the important part is that we were there. We set an example for others in the area and we made a difference. No amount of trash is too small to pick up - every bit counts.
We want to extend a big thank you to everyone who came to this cleanup. Thank you for supporting our mission, donating your time, and not being afraid to get your hands dirty. With your support, we are making a real and lasting impact on the local areas we freely enjoy.
