The Calguns Foundation is collaborating with the U.S. Forest Service to organize a clean-up of the “Glass Factory” gun range in the mountains above Santa Barbara.

Located on East Camino Cielo off Highway 154, the Glass Factory is a popular target-shooting area in the Los Padres National Forest.

The clean-up is scheduled for Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the range will be closed for the entire day.

Participants are encouraged to bring flat-blade shovels, wheelbarrows, plastic garbage bags, sunscreen, hats and gloves.

Prize drawings and a barbecue will be offered as an incentive for volunteers to join the effort to maintain the local gun range.

“If it rains Saturday, the clean-up will be postponed until the following weekend,” said Rick Helfrich of Goleta Valley Gun and Supply.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
