STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-July 6, 2020-The Friends of the Yampa and City of Steamboat Springs will be hosting a river clean up event Saturday, July 10, 2021.
This event is an annual effort that spans many miles of river, typically from Chuck Lewis State Wildlife Area to the Steamboat KOA Campground, and engages volunteers to give back to the Yampa River and reminds us all to respect the Yampa by keeping it clean and trash free.
There will be a total of 15 different stretches of the Yampa for volunteers to clean up this year, along with several downtown tributaries.
The event takes place from 9 AM to 12 PM, meeting at Little Toots Park, 55 12th Street in downtown Steamboat Springs. Volunteers can check-in on Saturday morning starting at 8:30 AM at Little Toots Park to receive additional instruction and cleaning supplies. At 12 PM, volunteers will return to Little Toots Park for a post clean-up celebration complete with music, free lunch, and cold drinks.
