Mountain Whitewater Descents Sponsors River Cleanup

Down Town Cache la Poudre River Cleanup

Join Mountain Whitewater Descents for their annual Cache la Poudre River Clean-up. With help from our co-sponsors Save the Poudre and the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Program, we will clean all along the Poudre trail from Taft Hill Road to Lemay Avenue, possibly further.

Clean-up meets Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 9am and will last until noon. All you need is gloves, sunscreen & the desire to make a difference in our community. Meet @ Lee Martinez Park in the main parking lot. Any and all volunteers are welcome; please register at the check-in table prior to the cleanup.

New World Sports will provide bike trailers to haul the trash bags off the trail, and Gallegos Sanitation is donating trash & recycling bins for the event.

Please try to carpool or ride bikes to reduce parking congestion and to reduce the event’s carbon footprint. Also, make sure to dress for the weather. We will clean the river rain or shine!!

To say thanks to anyone who volunteers during the event, there will be a volunteer appreciation event held at Mountain Whitewater Descents after the cleanup. The event is going to begin at 12:30pm and will last until around 5:00pm. There will be FREE beer provided by Odell Brewing Company and FREE food provided by Backcountry Provision and the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant. Other refreshments will also be provided for those who are not of legal drinking age. This event is only open to those who volunteer, so make sure you register for the cleanup before you start.
