2011 Poudre River Cleanup a huge success!

Over 100 Volunteers Gather to Clean up the Cache la Poudre.

12th Annual Poudre River Cleanup

Over 100 volunteers gathered on Saturday May 21 to clean up the Poudre River. Volunteers not only filled a 300 yard dumpster, overflowing its capacity but also collected 150 gallons of glass and aluminum recycling! Mountain Whitewater would like to thank our co-sponsors Save the Poudre and City of Fort Collins Natural Areas. The Poudre river cleanup is part of the National River Cleanup through American Rivers.

This is Mountain Whitewater 12th annual river cleanup. We would also like to thank the local companies that helped to make the cleanup such a huge success including New World Sports who gather the collected garabge and took it to the dumps and Gallegos Sanitation for providing us with dumpsters.

With the support of these local sponsors the cleanup was efficient and fun! The river cleanup is about more than just cleaning up the banks, it’s about connecting the community with one of the most valuable resources for Fort Collins.The post party was a great way to celebrate the efforts of everyone. Mountain Whitewater hosted the thank you celebration following the cleanup. Food and Beer was provided by Back Country Provisions, Odell Brewing Co., Rio Grande and Marcos Pizza.

Thanks again to our fantastic sponsors and all of our volunteers for helping to celebrate our City’s treasure, the Cache la Poudre! We hope to see everyone again next year!!

Mountain Whitewater Sponsors River Cleanup

Down Town Cache la Poudre River Cleanup

Join Mountain Whitewater for their annual Cache la Poudre River Clean-up. With help from our co-sponsors Save the Poudre and the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Program, we will clean all along the Poudre trail from Taft Hill Road to Lemay Avenue, possibly further.

Clean-up meets Saturday, May 21, 2011 @ 9am and will last until noon. All you need is gloves, sunscreen & the desire to make a difference in our community. Meet @ Lee Martinez Park in the main parking lot. Any and all volunteers are welcome; please register at the check-in table prior to the cleanup.

New World Sports will provide bike trailers to haul the trash bags off the trail, and Gallegos Sanitation is donating trash & recycling bins for the event.

Please try to carpool or ride bikes to reduce parking congestion and to reduce the event’s carbon footprint. Also, make sure to dress for the weather. We will clean the river rain or shine!!

To say thanks to anyone who volunteers during the event, there will be a volunteer appreciation event held at Mountain Whitewater after the cleanup. The event is going to begin at 12:30pm and will last until around 5:00pm. There will be FREE beer provided by Odell Brewing Company and FREE food provided by Backcountry Provision and the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant. Other refreshments will also be provided for those who are not of legal drinking age. This event is only open to those who volunteer, so make sure you register for the cleanup before you start.
