Mark Your Calendars For River Clean Up
It’s time again for the Annual Spring Cleanup. The cleanup areas include the Big Thompson River, Fall River, Fish Creek, Lake Estes, Mary’s Lake, and the entrance highways to Estes Park. The intent of the program is to clean our rivers from debris and create a heightened awareness of our rivers and their importance to our lives and environment. The event is being held one week prior to the annual Duck Race to provide a clean river for the race and beautifies the community for residents and visitors coming to Estes to view the race.
Again this year, we have collaborative sponsorship with the Rotary Club of Estes Park to provide the Annual Spring Cleanup. The Town of Estes Park and the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District have combined forces with the Noon Rotary Club to host the event.
The organized cleanup will be held Saturday, April 28, 2011, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. All groups and volunteers are asked to meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Lake Estes Marina for instructions, directions, and distribution of cleanup bags. Starbucks will be providing coffee and hot chocolate at the beginning of the event. Doughnuts and water will also be available.
We need volunteers to help with this program that promotes the Estes Park area and the environment. Please call or e-mail your total group number to Annie (586-2011 or firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have a specific area your group would like to clean-up, let Annie know this, as well.
We thank you for your participation in this valuable community event. If you have any questions, feel free to call Annie at the Lake Estes Marina.
