Clean Up Green Up
The Arkansas River and the Arkansas Riverwalk are generally the focus of the Clean Up/Green Up event in Canon City. All across Colorado volunteers will be picking up trash to help clean up and green up Colorado's rivers and by-ways.
Everyone is encouraged to attend, especially those that use the Arkansas Riverwalk.
Before the clean up begins, the Recreation District provides breakfast for the volunteers with assistance from Atmos Energy and the Fremont Community Foundation.. After joining us for breakfast, garbage bags provided by CDOT will be handed out and volunteer groups will be assigned areas on which to focus their clean up efforts. This is a great way to clean up the river corridor as the tourist season begins to pick up. Thank you to Howard Disposal for providing the dumpster each year for this community clean up event.
Location: Meet at the Recreation District Community Room, 575 Ash Street
Time: 8:00 am Free Breakfast; 9:00 am to Start Clean up
Date: Postponed-Future Date to be Determined
