5th Annual Ladd Marsh Cleanup Day

               REMINDER! Ladd Marsh Cleanup Day is this Saturday beginning at 9:00AM. Friends of Ladd Marsh will be joined by members of Oregon Hunter’s Association (OHA) and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers to clean up trash on the wildlife area. Participants must check in at Ladd Marsh HQ to fill out volunteer forms and get a permit to be in closed areas. Thanks to OHA, we now have several grabbers and a large supply of trash bags.

Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, recognizing the potential for wet ground and strong wind. Please leave pets at home or make other arrangements.

Directions to Ladd Marsh HQ: From La Grande, take the Union Highway (203) to Pierce Rd (B&K Auto Salvage). Turn right (south) on Pierce. Continue for approximately 1 ¼ mile to HQ on the right.

From Union, turn left on Pierce Rd and follow above directions.

HQ can be reached from I-84: Take exit 268 (Foothill Rd) then turn east. At the “T” with Pierce Rd, turn left (north). Continue about 1 1/2 mile to HQ on the left.
