“We look forward to this event to pull together as a community and give back to our beautiful lake ecosystem. This is an incredibly popular day use area that serves thousands of visitors each year,” exclaimed Bennett Rossell, the Non-Motorized Trails Coordinator for the Southern California Mountains Foundation. “Through this experience, volunteers will learn the importance of land and trail stewardship and about other similar opportunities available here in Big Bear Valley.”
Meadows Edge is located on Highway 38, 2 miles east of Fawnskin on the North Shore of Big Bear Lake and adjacent to Serrano Campground. The 2015 clean up was the inaugural event hosting over 75 volunteers with expectations exceeded in removing a medley of trash items.
This event is co-sponsored by the nonprofit Southern California Mountains Foundation; U.S. Forest Service; and Mountaintop Recreation, a Division of California Land Management.
