Participant Opportunities

Volunteers will meet here: 12920 W 72nd Ave, Arvada, CO 80005 (Arvada Skate Park) 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. Description of Work: This site will focus on removing the Japanese Knotweed and Common Teasel that are growing along Ralston Creek. These are both invasive species that can ruin natural habitat. Be sure to join us for our post project celebration at Anderson Park in Wheat Ridge 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.
