The Bureau of Land Management is launching a new effort to address trash and safety problems at a popular target shooting area just outside of Las Vegas.
The patch of public land is located about seven miles south of M Resort. After more than two decades of use, the area is littered with broken glass and thousands of spent shotgun shells and bullet casings.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the bureau is hosting volunteer cleanups as well as partnering with local law enforcement agencies to step up patrols.
Federal regulations prohibit both littering and the use of glass targets on public land. County ordinances ban shooting within a half mile of the highway.
