Visitors dump trash Salmon-Challis National forest lands

Officials and general park enthusiasts were not happy today (Tuesday) after a picture surfaced of a large pile of trash left in one of Idaho’s national forests.

The large pile of trash was found on lands in the Salmon-Challis National Forest. The forest service took to Facebook to express their concern and advice after the pile was found.

The post reads, “Dispose of Waste Properly! Visitors – PLEASE be mindful of even the smallest effects you may have on the land and on the experiences of those around you.”

CBS2 reports that while it is common to see a piece of trash left behind on a trail, this incident was quite egregious.

The post continued, “If you PACK IT IN – you PACK IT OUT. Please help keep the Salmon-Challis and other National Forests BEAUTIFUL!”

The post end with “It is NOT OKAY to leave your trash!”
