In recent weeks, 20 volunteers working two days reclaimed two illegally created routes on public lands in the Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees National Natural Landmark about 10 miles south of Meadview. "It's far harder to fix environmental damage than it is to create it," said BLM Kingman Recreation Planner Len Marceau. The effort was spearheaded by Sharon Baur of Meadview. The volunteers restored two sets of illegal tracks (1.5 miles total) in the National Natural Landmark and picked up trash.
