Guam - The We Are Guahan organization is hosting a cleanup along the Back Road to Andersen Air Force Base and the trail to Pagat this Sunday from 7-9am. The cleanup is being done to continue heighten the effort to preserve and protect Pagat from the Department of Defense's plans to acquiring property in the area for a training range for U.S. Marines.
The total land area near Pagat that the DoD plans to acquire is as large as the villages of Hagatna and Sinajana combined. The cleanup will track the proposed fenceline that will surround the federal government's firing range complex.
Parking will be available at the Guam International Raceway Park. Garbage bags, gloves and water will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to dress in hiking attire. In addition to the cleanup, We Are Guahan will also have a station set up to collect comments on the Final Environmental Impact Statement.
