The Colorado

River Cleanup

Join the Grand Valley Paddling Club for their 16th Annual Colorado River Cleanup on August 1, 2020!

The Colorado River Cleanup is an on-the-water cleanup where trash collected on the banks is floated downriver to the takeout and then disposed of.

 

This is not only a time when we pull tires and couches from the river but, a time to raise awareness and stewardship for our rivers.
