September 19 was a beautiful ,clear, windy day in the Sierra Valley.  Our volunteers met at the Roundup Café for a hearty breakfast before heading out to pick up trash on our adopted two mile stretch of Hwy 49.  HSRA volunteers worked for several hours scouring the shoulders of the highway. 

When our section was complete, thirteen bags of trash, five bags of recyclables and approximately 4 tires had been corralled.  The recyclables were taken to the transfer site and Caltrans picked up everything else.  Thanks go to our volunteers and Caltrans for administering this program and being a good partner in the efforts to keep our Valley clean.

If anyone is missing a duck decoy or a black bra, you can probably find them in the landfill by now.
