A volunteer cleanup in late June at the Nasty Flats area of the Ahtanum Winter Recreation Area netted more than two tons of discarded junk: carpet, mattresses, tarps, construction material and more. DNR thanks the Jeeping Nomads and Eastern Washington Adventures for contributing 215 hours of their time to the effort.
