Arizona Game and Fish Department to host dove hunting clean-up event


YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side)  – The Arizona Game and Fish Department will be holding an event this weekend to clean up the fields used by dove hunters.

It will be held Saturday, September 14, from 6:00 am - 11:00 am.

If you are interested in helping to clean up the fields, you can meet with the group at the Sprague's Sports parking lot.

You will be provided with trash bags, water and maps of areas that need the most cleaning. 

 "Every year hundreds if not thousands flock to Yuma for dove hunting," said Chris Bedinger, Public Information Officer with AZGFD. 

Bedinger said they want to do the clean up "as a way to say thank you to the local farmers who allow access to their land we are organizing a cleanup to remove some of the debris left behind."

Please bring sunscreen, hats, gloves, and a car that can transport the shells and boxes picked up.

A dumpster will be available at Sprague's for disposal. 

For more information, contact the Yuma offices of the Arizona Game and Fish Department at 928-342-0091.
