26th Annual Eagle River Cleanup

We all love to play on our rivers and streams during the warm months but that love can take its toll. That’s why each September, we get down and dirty for a day of cleaning along the waterways that we all cherish.

This year, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Eagle River watershed has experienced higher-than-normal river use rates, and while we're grateful this precious resource has been able to provide stress relief, recreation, and opportunities for responsible gatherings, we know it is imperative to care for the river by removing trash and debris from our waterways.

The event will look and feel different this year, so that we can ensure regulations that protect public health are met, and while we are disappointed that we won't be able to gather with a BBQ celebration at the end, we are anticipating a swelling of community pride and camaraderie that will be unmatched in the event's 25-year history.

The Eagle River Cleanup, presented by Vail Resorts EpicPromise, is a hallmark event of the Watershed Council and one that shows the strength of our mountain community. More than 350 volunteers from local businesses, organizations, families and friends annually show their dedication to our valley by forming teams to clean up over 68 miles of Eagle County rivers and streams.

This event page will be updated as more details are available.

Pre-registration is required and the deadline is Friday, September 4th. For more information or to register, please email cleanup@erwc.org or call us at the office (970) 827-5406.
