FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Kaibab National Forest is asking for the community’s help in keeping their park clean after their employees collected over 1,000 pounds of trash.

The trash, which filled up six separate vehicles, was left in the Oak Hill Snow Play area after the latest round of snowstorms, an area 10 miles east of Williams with three separate runs; one reserved for skiing and the other two for tubing.

The images reveal a startling amount of sleds and other items used to take rides in the area and then left behind in addition to other garbage.

The response from the community has been strong. The post by the park on Facebook has nearly 3,000 shares and over 550 comments bringing more attention to the issue.
