CALGARY, ALBERTA — Crews are hard at work cleaning up the Eau Claire campground in the wake of December’s unit shoot for the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster The Bourne Legacy, according to the Calgary Herald.

Cleaning crews are on site, adhering to the province''s contract with Universal Pictures, but campers who have ventured in to the area worry about long-term damage, the article stated.

"The debris is just unbelievable for a provincial park," Richard Bird told the Herald, adding that he plans to lodge a formal complaint. "They left this thing in a heck of a mess."

According to Susan Johnson of Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation, "Any production company that shoots in the Kananaskis is contractually bound to leave the area as they found it."

Mark Manning of Manco Services said his company was contracted by Universal to clean up, and are planning to start today, the article noted.
