2019 Colorado River Cleanup
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.
