Check out the organized clean ups. It's the best way to meet the community and learn where and how to use public lands responsibly.
We are doing non ODF supported cleanups at public forests - check the North Fork Wolf Creek Road thread in resources.
If you really want to get involved in community action check out Trash No Land.
