Volunteers are needed on National Public Lands Day, to help remove trash and wire from the Sand Wash Wild Horse Herd Management Area northwest of Maybell. Sand Wash Basin has some of the most colorful wild horses in Colorado and is a popular off-highway vehicle riding area. Volunteers will spend four hours helping to make the area safer for wild horses, wildlife and people. Because of the distance, the event includes an overnight camping trip the night before with a hot dog and marshmallow roast. Camping will be about a mile and a half past the Sand Wash Basin entrance; just look for the NPLD camping sign. Volunteers should meet at the Sand Wash Basin corrals on Moffat County Road 67 at 9 a.m. All volunteers will be treated to a free barbecue, t-shirt, a fee-free day pass to a participating public land, a goody bag, and more.
