Volunteers are needed for cleanup efforts on Saturday, May 17th.
WAHA, ID - The Nez Perce County Sheriff's office needs the public's help preserving one of Idaho's most scenic areas.

According to law enforcement, people visiting the Waha area have been leaving a lot of trash behind. One of the major problems is nails from people burning pallets up in the wilderness. The sheriff's office, Idaho Fish and Game, and several other agencies are looking to restore the beauty back into the area on May 17th.

"I will be there personally going up and we ask that anybody that wants to participate in it that enjoys using Waha area for recreational or family, or if they have property up there they can participate in that day of cleaning up the trash that people are leaving behind," said Nez Perce Co. Sheriff Joe Rodriguez.

If you're wanting to make a difference and join in on the cleanup efforts, everyone will meet at Cruise Meadows at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 17th.
