2019 Colorado River Cleanup

September 16, 2019

The Colorado River Cleanup was a success! 

 

75 fantastic volunteers showed up

to clean the Colorado from bank to bank! 

 

 18 yards of trash was removed with some notable items:

  • A huge dam bouy 

  • A Jack Daniels bottle with a note inside! 

  • A 15 foot culvert 

  • and a steel bathtub that took the entire group to lift

 

 We removed so many tires that it took a barge to get them out.

 

 

After the cleanup there was an awesome BBQ!

Sponsored by Reynolds Polymer 

Everyone was stoked for their hard earned meal.

 

30 different sponsors donated over $2000 in prizes so that everyone who participated in The Colorado River Cleanup could receive a prize from the raffle letting them know we appreciate their hard work.  

 

It was a group effort and the paddling community showed up!

In total we cleaned 30 miles of the Colorado River

and had a day full of memories. 

 

be sure to check out the news coverage for the cleanup

The Daily Sentinel wrote up an article 

and Krex 5 News had live coverage of the event
