National Public Lands Day Clear Creek Cleanup: Lions Park

 09/24/2022  |  08:00 AM - 01:00 PM

Participant Opportunities

Volunteers will meet in the back parking lot of the City of Golden Public Works building: Participants will be working along a 22 mile stretch of the Peaks to Plains Trail along Clear Creek. Past efforts have resulted in the collection of 12,220 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. The canyon will be closed for this very special event! Be sure to join us for our post project celebration at the Gateway Trailhead in Golden 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. REQUIREMENTS: Be in good physical condition Be able to use a variety of tools, including shovels, picks and rakes Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian Be prepared for numerous and changing environmental conditions WHAT TO BRING & WEAR: Closed-toe, sturdy shoes are required No open-toed shoes or sandals of any kind will be allowed Work gloves Plenty of water (2 quarts minimum) Rain gear Snacks Sunscreen and insect repellent A day pack
