The Okanagan Forest Task Force was recently tasked with assisting the RCMP in clearing the backcountry.
OFTF founder Kane Blake posted to Facebook March 11 before and after photos of a Bartley Road illegal camp that had been there over a year.
The individuals who had been living at the site were towed out with the help of Mario’s Towing to a location lined up by Natural Resource Officers.
The group that participated in the clean-up removed 3,420 pounds of metal which was sent to ABC Recycling and threw out tons of garbage.
Blake thanked the RCMP and the Natural Resource Officers, saying it was a pleasure to work alongside the two organizations.
