Gadget Dan reports we have removed another 1595 pounds of litter from Public Lands, as of April 17. 2010 and a total of more than 47,600 pounds since starting the litter removal program. Kingfish and Dan have been making repairs to damaged range fencing due South of Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosa's Memorial Cross. So far, they have repaired about 200 yards of damaged range fencing. They have about 100 yards of additional fencing to monitor and repair to complete the project.
Rather than fixing the fence, how about some warning shots?
God bless ‘em. They are actually doing something tangible to help this country. In the hot sun.
Thanks seem inadequate but that’s all I’ve got right now so... Thank You!
Thanks for your support - it means a lot.
First they are illegal by coming into our country without going through the visa process. The they, illegally litter on public lands. I guess when you are on a roll.....
If would be nice to ship that trash and deposit it on Michelle’s garden. Isn’t that on public land. ;0)

The alien litter and destruction of land isn’t just on the border. Check this out from NAFBPO.
Employees of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest recently cleaned up a pot grow site in the backwoods:
A marijuana site cleanup took place on the Shasta Lake District of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest (STNF) on April 7, 2010. Forest personnel worked throughout the day to clean up litter from abandoned Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) marijuana sites.
A helicopter was used to transport large amounts of trash, hose, propane tanks, insecticides and other waste from the marijuana sites to then be properly disposed of.
The forest is conducting these procedures to ensure the safety of forest visitors and agency employees, STNF Patrol Captain Chad Krogstad said.
In the past six months STNF personnel have initiated and completed clean up on two DTO sites on the Mount Shasta Ranger District and three sites on the Shasta Lake Ranger District. Some of the garbage has been packed out on foot, hauled away in vehicles, and flown out of remote sites by helicopters. At one site personnel collected around 300 pounds of trash, four miles of hose, three propane tanks and one gallon of insecticide.
Illegal marijuana cultivation poses a public safety risk and directly harms the environment. The illegal use of pesticides can cause extensive long-term damage to natural resources. The use of herbicides, pesticides and rodenticides can cause extensive and long-term damage to ecosystems and impact public drinking water for hundreds of miles. Timber and vegetation are destroyed, much needed water is diverted from watersheds, streams, lakes, and public drinking water supplies, and fish and wildlife habitat are destroyed.
The Forest Service will continue to work with our partners at the federal, state and local levels to address the use of public lands to grow marijuana illegally, Kristy Cottini, STNF Shasta Lake District Ranger, said. This is something we take very seriously that can have negative effects on fish and wildlife habitats, as well as other legitimate uses of National Forest system lands.
Be careful out there, especially when youre hiking cross-country near year-round streams.
