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.  The Recreation District teams up with the Friends of the Arkansas River for this annual event.  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.

The Recreation District provides breakfast for the volunteers with assistance from Atmos Energy and the Fremont Community Foundation, before the clean up begins.  After joining us for breakfast,  garbage bags will be provided and volunteer groups will be assigned to areas on which to focus their clean up efforts.  This is a great way to clean up the river corridor as the tourist season bgins to pick up. 

Location:  Meet at the Recreation District Community Room

Time:       8:00 am Free Breakfast; 9:00 am to Start Clean up
