ALAA had worked with Doug True,Trip Leader for the Terry, Montana colossal Field Trip for the AFMS & NFMS and decided to clean up the off ramp of I-94 into town. On checking out the area, we found the town's 4-H students had already cleaned the area, as well as streets, the park and other areas around the town.
This was the cleanest little town we've seen. So on Sunday morning at the end of the festivities, ALAA arranged for a picture of those who would have attended the clean-up and showed "empty ALAA clean-up bags," and the group who would have done the work Doug said there were people from at lease 30 states and Canada….what a turnout. Between 300 and 400 people.
And we got a compliment, after our Barbeque on Saturday evening in the park, the city sent people into clean up….we had done the job….there was nothing to clean up except the full bags of trash around the trash can. ….the city was very appreciative.

The above pictures speak for themselves. The AFMS Code of Ethics, obviously was not followed. We don't know if this is recent or over many years, either way, it's not acceptable behavior by rockhounds.
