With winter officially in the books, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District is calling on volunteers to come out and help cleanup the sled hill at Spooner Summit.

The Spooner sled hill cleanup will take place Friday, May 3, from 3 to 6 p.m.

Volunteers should meet in the parking lot at the Spooner Watercraft Inspection Station near the intersection of Nevada Route 28 and U.S. 50, off of Nevada Route 28 in the snow park area.

Parking will be available on the roadside coming into the watercraft inspection station. Do not park on the highway shoulders.

Tahoe Resource Conservation District will provide cleanup materials, but volunteers are asked to bring a reusable water bottle, gloves and friends.

Prizes will be awarded to the volunteer with the most unusual trash item and the greatest weight of trash collected.

Spooner Summit is a popular sledding destination during the winter months, which leads to the accumulation of hundreds of pounds of trash.

In May of 2017, after one of the largest winters on record, volunteers collected and removed 500 pounds of trash, the Tribune previously reported.
