Short Description of Activity
Judith made one trip this month. BLM staff have been to the site and placed poles along the area around the parking lot to deter people from using 4-wheelers to descend in that area. Over all there had been very little use of the site and trash left by the users. Someone however had dumped a load of weeds in the parking lot along with part of a plastic fence. This was cleaned up and removed.
It is an ongoing task to keep the BLM land free of trash. The use of bicycles and motorized vehicles is apparent from tracks on the dunes. BLM is aware of this and now has taken steps to try to reduce the use of 4-wheelers.
