A week ahead of National Public Lands Day, volunteers spent Saturday (Sept. 20) cleaning Orland Buttes Campground at Black Butte Lake in California, the Appeal Democrat of Marysville reported.

Chico Roller Girls, Hamilton City Fire, Corning Boy Scouts and a number of individual volunteers spent the morning pulling invasive weeds, painting, cleaning picnic tables, cutting and stacking wood and removing trash.

“They did a great job,” said Amber Machado, park ranger at Black Butte Lake, which is in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District. “The park is really looking nice.”

Last year, volunteers gave Buckhorn Campground a makeover for the annual cleanup day.

“Black Butte Lake is a local treasure,” said Ashley Clark, of Orland, a member of the Cleats and Cleavage woman’s softball team, who volunteered Saturday.

Clark, who rides her horses at Orland Buttes, said it was important for the community to help maintain the National Park, which brings people from all over the state to Glenn County.
