The West Sacramento Trail Riders Association completed their annual clean-up of the ”Honda Hills” area by the corner of Jefferson Blvd. and South River Road on Feb. 26.

The group is , an organization of community members dedicated to the love of horses and the protection and preservation of rural lands

WSTRA President Jason Williams announced that over 20 club members dedicated more than 100 hours, plus the use of their trucks, trailers and tractors to pick-up over 40 yards of trash, couches, mattresses, wood, bottles, cans, carpet remnants and 82 tires from the publicly-owned area.

  “We do this several times a year and we are happy to be able to clean up this area to beautify our community,” said Williams.  “It is hard work but a fun activity for our WSTRA members.”
