Graffiti Be Gone
By Shaaron Netherton
Mt. Rose Wilderness was hit earlier in the summer by graffiti vandals. Along the popular trail to Church's Pond, over 20 rocks, trees and logs were defaced with green and blue graffiti. Friends of Nevada Wilderness volunteers, partnering with the Forest Service cleaned all that up on August 9. Armed with wire brushes, rubber gloves, and spray bottles of biodegradable graffiti remover, the volunteers hiked up the trail scrubbing out the graffiti as they climbed the trail. Much of the graffiti was located at Church's Pond.
