Stanley Spring Clean-up

SIHA News and Events

The snow has melted in Stanley revealing trash that found its way to the side of the road over the winter. The Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association, in partnership with the Sawtooth Society and local community members, is again organizing an event to collect roadside trash that has accumulated along Stanley streets and Highways 21 and 75.

We need your help! Volunteer to pick-up a section of highway or city streets. Join us on Wednesday, June 12 for a morning for spring cleaning. We’ll be set up outside the Stanley Community Building (510 Eva Falls Ave.) distributing safety gear, garbage bags and assigning sections of road from 9am to noon. RSVP’s are extremely helpful so we know who is coming and can cover as many sections of road as possible! RSVP’s are appreciated by June 7th.

You can join the event for any amount of time you are available, and if you would like to grab supplies early, or to participate at a time more convenient for you, you can contact Lin at the Stanley Museum to make arrangements: email or call 208.774.3517.

Special thanks to the City of Stanley and the Idaho Transportation Department for providing supplies. Once volunteers have completed their service and gathered any and all garbage, the City of Stanley will be accepting the bagged garbage in the dumpster at the Community Building. Return before 1pm and receive a prize!

The Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association and the Sawtooth Society continue to work to reduce the impact of visitors on the Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA) through clean-up events like this one. An end-of-season dispersed campground clean-up is being planned for September with several other area partners.Stay tuned for opportunities to help out in the fall, too.

We hope you’ll join us!
