Equestrians and local law enforcement team up to help the environment

A group of local horseback riders partnered up with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office Saturday to put on their largest Clean Up Day yet.

Ride Nipomo and Officers from the San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office met in Nipomo Saturday morning to clean up several roads and trails.

Volunteers mainly focused on an area south of Eucalyptus road. They say that area is a major dumping ground for old tires and refrigerators.

This was Ride Nipomo's fifth Clean Up Day.

They say they've lost a lot of their favorite riding areas to new housing and building developments. They clean up the areas that do still exist as a thank you to developers who keep riding trails accessible.
