14th Annual "Pick Up the Burn" Clean up Event!
"Partnering to preserve our recreational target shooting rights"
Join us, along with 150 to 200 other volunteers, as we team up in Yacolt Burn State Forest with Washington State Department of Natural Resources and a variety of other recreation groups including; hiking, biking, equestrian, and motorized; to help improve the Yacolt Burn State Forest! All in one action packed day!
It is important that we, as members of the gun community known as Northwest Firearms, make a strong showing at this event. The other recreation groups really want us to be actively involved because they have hope and faith in our efforts to make a difference in the way our Forest is treated. We'd like to see at least 20 volunteers here!
Be there for the Coffee, Donuts, Safety Briefing, Music and Sign-in at 8 am!
