On Saturday, September 25, 2010 for National Public Lands Day the Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch added the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office ORV Rules signs to the entrance of a few DNR areas.
It was 52.5 miles from the first sign to the last.

Here are a few pictures of our work day.

We met up at the Ahtanum Sno-park at 10 AM to place the first sign.
Greg Mackey from the DNR came out to help us for the day. Greg brought an auger to make the job easier for us.
