John Burton, of Mesa, Ariz., is organizing a mini-cleanup at the Imperial Sand Dunes on Saturday as part of his Eagle Scout service project.
The 13-year-old has been a Boy Scout since he was 8 years old and said he has put about 20 hours into the project so far.
Josh said his family goes to the dunes regularly. The emphasis of his project is public safety and service.
The American Sand Association is helping Josh with the cleanup.
Volunteers are scheduled to meet at the base of Competition Hill near the Buttercup Campground in the south dunes off Interstate 8 at 8:30 a.m.
