22ND ANNUAL EAGLE RIVER CLEAN UP
Cleanup 9am to noon
Thank You BBQ noon to 2pm
We all love to play on our rivers and streams during the warm months but all 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.
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. Over 350 volunteers from local businesses, organizations, families and friends show their dedication to our valley by forming teams to clean up over 68 miles of Eagle County rivers and streams. After a morning of hard work, the volunteers and their families are invited to celebrate the successful cleanup with a free Thank You BBQ – great food, local beer, live music and a raffle make this event a must!
We’re always looking for more volunteers! To become a Team Leader or join an existing team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at the office (970)827-5406.
