Every year since 1992, the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (managed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Bureau of Land Management) has sponsored our annual Arkansas River Cleanup/Greenup in May. We pick up trash along 120 miles of the Arkansas River from Leadville to Canon City in South-Central Colorado, as well as on public lands and waters surrounding the river. Hundreds of volunteers join in this event to get some "spring cleaning" done and usher in the melting of the mountain snows and warm weather. Folks young and old are invited, and there is a place and task for everyone. At noon we will serve a volunteer picnic at Riverside Park in downtown Salida for some fun and refreshments. See you there!
