Did you know there's a Clifton Nature Park where herons have nests way up in tall Cottonwoods?
The park needs your help...
Park stewards needed! A special opportunity for families and individuals to pick up trash, pull weeds, and monitor native plant growth to create
better habitat for insects, wildlife and our community!
Join us (Mesa County staff) in maintaining and creating healthy landscapes to live and play by participating in the clean-up of Clifton Nature Park!
The event will take place from 10 a.m to 12 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, 2019 and includes the opportunity for a descriptive nature walk after picking up trash, pulling a few weeds and monitoring the growth of the native plants we transplanted last fall!
Make sure you pack sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks, and water. We recommend you wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and sturdy shoes. We will have some gloves available, but if you have a favorite pair— please bring them along!
Meet at the Clifton Nature Park parking lot, which is located on the south side of D Road between 32 1/4 and 32 1/2 Road, next door to Clifton Sanitation District.
This Clifton Nature Park clean-up is sponsored by Mesa County, RiversEdge West, Clifton Sanitation District and Colorado Baby! All ages welcome!
