Tule Springs Fossil Beds was declared a National Monument in 2014 because of the significant natural resources within its boundaries. However, for years the area has been used as a recreational area for target shooting and off-road vehicles as well as an illegal dumping ground for trash. Although steps have been made to curtail activities that damage the area and detract from its beauty, incidents of dumping, driving and shooting in the protected area continue.
Protectors of Tule Springs in cooperation with the National Park Service (NPS) is launching a community watch program, “I’m a Protector,” engaging residents and businesses near the monument to join in the effort to preserve the beauty and protect its resources for all to enjoy.Join this important public safety initiative and help protect and preserve the beauty of the natural spaces in your backyard.
Plan on attending one of two scheduled meetings in April to learn how you can become our “eyes and ears” and help the NPS by reporting vandalism, illegal dumping, and other potentially dangerous practices.
April 12, 2017 from 6-7 @ Centennial Hills YMCA and April 24
