We need Volunteers! The Council is hosting its first annual Colorado River cleanup and needs help picking up litter along the public riverbanks from South Canyon to Silt on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Many areas will be accessible to volunteers on foot, but boaters are especially encouraged to participate.

The cleanup will be followed by a community barbecue and picnic for volunteers, with burgers and bratwursts and other fabulous food donated by local restaurants, starting at noon.

Anyone can volunteer. Please let us know you’re coming so we can plan for food and drinks. Sign up in advance here. If you are able to bring a suitable raft or boat, tell us when you pre-register. We can work out shuttles and rides.

Sign-in will start at 8:00 a.m. at Grand River Park (on the south side of the river) in New Castle. Walk or bike to the park if you live nearby — parking is limited.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, sunscreen, a hat, and work gloves, and bring drinking water.
