Spring Clean in Denver w/ Sierra Club

We'll be cleaning up Denver this Spring on four Saturday outings.  We'll be meeting May 4th at 8:30am at Paris on the Platte and cleaning along the Platte River from 9am to noon.  The group will be split in two with one group headed North towards 47th Ave. and the other group headed South towards Phil Milstein Park.  Collectively I would like to push for 6 miles of coverage, but that's a goal not a requirement.  We'll meet back at Paris on the Platte between 12:15-12:30.  I will be getting materials (trash bags and trash grabbers) from the city's Keep Denver Beautiful Program; however, supplies are on a first-come first-served basis so there might not be enough trash grabbers for everyone.  Please bring your own work gloves to protect your hands from cuts etc. and bring plenty of water, appropriate clothing, and sunscreen.  We will be participating in the Great American Cleanup which runs from April 1st-May 31st.  All outings are limited to 12 people total and children 13 and over are certainly welcome.  All events are rain or shine; only if we have a large snowstorm will the outings be canceled (and since it's May in Colorado, totally possible).  Please contact Colleen at [masked] or [masked] to sign up.  Let's keep Denver beautiful y'all!

    Beautiful weather today and we had 4 volunteers out there cleaning up the Platte. We collected at least 10 bags of trash; great day!
