KIW + Hydro Flask Cleanup | June 2, 2018

The Event:  We teamed up with our friends at Hydro Flask to host a collaborative meetup and cleanup initiative in their home city of Bend, OR!

However, our 30+ volunteers still managed to remove 30 lbs of trash. This Cleanup was a true testament to the phrase "Every bit counts". Though this was one of our smaller Cleanups, it was still successful. The weather was perfect and throughly enjoyed spending time with Hydro Flask's...

Sugar Loaf Cleanup | March 24, 2018

Video by Ethan Nuttall.  The Event:  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...
