Sheridan - The Tongue River Canyon Public Access Area near Dayton received a much-needed clean-up day on April 27. Almost two-dozen volunteers from the Wyoming Wilderness Association and students of the Sheridan College Business Ethics class removed several bags of trash from campsites and the roadway and constructed three wooden picnic tables for public use.


 
Two of the tables were placed at the trailhead parking lot and one table was placed at a campsite. The Sheridan College class designed and built the tables and secured materials through a generous donation by Knecht Home Center. Sheridan High School students will also soon donate plaques to be placed on the picnic tables, recognizing the volunteer efforts on this community project.
 
"We always appreciate the public’s efforts to maintain a clean and enjoyable area for all users,” said Sheridan Region Habitat and Access Coordinator Seth Roseberry. “These volunteers’ efforts and donors’ generosity will be greatly appreciated by the thousands of users of this area this summer."
 
The public access area, which is part of the Amsden Wildlife Habitat Management Area, was purchased by the Game and Fish Commission in 1944 and celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. It is popular with campers, anglers, cyclists and hikers and offers seven campsites, two restrooms and more than a mile of public fishing access.
