Weekend Clean Up Set For Avalanche Site

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Neighbors, who live near the site where an avalanche hit at the base of Mount Jumbo two weeks ago, are looking for volunteers willing to help dig snow and clean up private properties.

A post-avalanche clean up at Holly and Harrison Streets is set to take place Saturday. Organizers said volunteers should wear boots and gloves to handle nails and glass. They said you should bring shovels, sturdy rakes, and plastic garbage bags if possible. No children or pets are allowed at the site.

The goal is to remove snow near damaged houses, clean up debris in yards, and potentially uncover more personal belongings. The work day starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
