The Arroyo Seco is a spectacular slice of wild nature that gets extremely heavy visitation. Unfortunately, not all visitors understand the importance of keeping the river's gorge & Day Use Area clean, so the VWA needs your help re-wilding this special place.
Let's organize ourselves into 3 discrete units & clean up the Arroyo Seco:
1) Day Use Area Team (easy, drive-up access to clean-up site)
2) Use-Trail Team (1-3 miles of hiking to clean-up sites)
3) Extreme Team (3 miles of hiking, then 3 miles of swimming & hiking to clean-up sites)
Parking fills up early & costs $10 per vehicle, so car-pools are advised & EARLY ARRIVAL is essential. Clean-up day will begin promptly at 8AM for a safety circle, then we'll "divide & conquer".
At the end of the day, we'll re-convene for photos, stories, dinner, & cold beverages at a nearby celebration hosted by the Arroyo Seco Citizen's Association.
A limited amount of free on-site camping is available both Friday & Saturday night. Please be sure to let us know if (& which nights) you need a campsite.
IMPORTANT- for equipment & liability reasons, EVERY MEMBER OF YOUR PARTY MUST RSVP INDIVIDUALLY.
