The Redding Geocachers Club continued an annual partnership with the BLM Redding Field Office on Saturday, April 21, cleaning up tons of trash from a litter-strewn parcel of public land in observance of Earth Day.
The club members held their annual “Cache In, Trash Out” (CITO) event with more than 15 participants working on a parcel along Bear Creek east of Redding. The BLM provided tools and equipment while the club members provided muscle and determination.

Nearly seven tons of trash were hauled out of the area. The crew picked up 54 tires, piles of household garbage, a few couches, and the battleship Missouri (a model replica). A barbecue was held after the event complete with door prizes.
