2011 Poudre River Cleanup a huge success!

Over 100 Volunteers Gather to Clean up the Cache la Poudre.

12th Annual Poudre River Cleanup

Over 100 volunteers gathered on Saturday May 21 to clean up the Poudre River. Volunteers not only filled a 300 yard dumpster, overflowing its capacity but also collected 150 gallons of glass and aluminum recycling! Mountain Whitewater Descents would like to thank our co-sponsors Save the Poudre and City of Fort Collins Natural Areas. The Poudre river cleanup is part of the National River Cleanup through American Rivers.

This is Mountain Whitewater Descents 12th annual river cleanup. We would also like to thank the local companies that helped to make the cleanup such a huge success including New World Sports who gather the collected garabge and took it to the dumps and Gallegos Sanitation for providing us with dumpsters.

With the support of these local sponsors the cleanup was efficient and fun! The river cleanup is about more than just cleaning up the banks, it’s about connecting the community with one of the most valuable resources for Fort Collins.The post party was a great way to celebrate the efforts of everyone. Mountain Whitewater Descents hosted the thank you celebration following the cleanup. Food and Beer was provided by Back Country Provisions, Odell Brewing Co., Rio Grande and Marcos Pizza.

Thanks again to our fantastic sponsors and all of our volunteers for helping to celebrate our City’s treasure, the Cache la Poudre! We hope to see everyone again next year!!
