KAMLOOPS — Between 150 and 200 people showed up yesterday for the big grasslands cleanup on the Dewdrop.

Naturalist Club vice-president Frank Ritcey posted on his Facebook page that they took a lot of garbage out of the area, old appliances, tires, furniture, you name it- Ritcey says it was probably there.

He says a number of outdoor groups participated in the cleanup, and said it was another big success.

He said last week tens of thousands of pounds of trash have been collected from the Dewdrop, and says groups need to continue to be vigilant in identifying people who decide to get rid of their trash in the grasslands instead of dumping it in the proper places.

Yesterday's was the third annual event.
