As the temperature rises, so does the number of visitors to some of the most popular spots along Oak and Fossil creeks.The Forest Service banned glass containers along the banks of Oak Creek or Fossil Creek beginning Tuesday, April 1, to prevent injuries to people walking or wading with bare feet.

And while users of these areas are welcomed, glass containers are not.

Beginning Tuesday, April 1, all glass containers along the two creeks are banned with violators facing fines up to $5,000 and as much as six months in jail.

According to Recreation Staff Officer Jennifer Burns, of the Coconino National Forest, broken glass containers are to blame for cut feet and litter in many locations along these two streams. This prohibition will enhance health and safety and reduce hazardous waste in the stream corridor.
