Participant Opportunities

Volunteers will meet here: 4900 Marshall St. Volunteers are encouraged to use alternative transportation to attend the project. Participants will be working along a 19.5 mile stretch of the Peaks to Plains Trail along Clear Creek along with other tributaries. Past efforts have resulted in the collection of 38,870 pounds of trash. Mismanaged trash that escapes into waterways can create a wide range of problems. Aquatic trash affects water quality, endangers plants and animals, and pollutes the outdoor spaces that we depend on for tourism and recreation. At the Creekside site volunteers will be repairing portions of the park and cleaning up alongside the creek. Trends toward increased visitation, changing climate conditions, and the spread of invasive species are challenges that public land managers are facing throughout the country. Your volunteer time is essential to helping preserve our natural areas for water quality, wildlife habitat, and recreation, now, and into the future. Join us for a day of conservation work along Clear Creek and a celebration of National Public Lands Day. Thank you for Volunteering! Be sure to join us for our post project celebration at Anderson Park in Wheat Ridge https://goo.gl/maps/jiBb3GGEig5uxu5u9. Volunteers will be treated to live music, free food from a handful of food trucks and beer for individuals 21 years of age and older. Volunteers arriving on foot or bike will receive an extra raffle ticket for a chance to win an amazing prize.
