South Platte River Clean Up-
What: For the past several years, over 250 rafters, kayakers, cyclists and pedestrians have come together and successfully removed over 2 TONS of garbage from Denver’s South Platte River corridor. The event has received local and regional attention as the best river stewardship event in the Metro area. This year, Colorado Whitewater, in partnership with Down River Equipment, and Confluence Kayaks is presenting the 12th Annual South Platte River Clean-up, and we need your help to make it the MOST SUCCESSFUL YEAR YET! Participating in the Clean-up is a great way to give back to your community and take care of the river that winds its way through the heart of Denver. Registration is FREE and there’s a terrific after party with giveaways.
Event Details: Participants can join by raft, kayak, or other water craft. Please note that rafts and inflatable kayaks are easier to carry trash. We also encourage people to participate by bike or by foot! If you do not have a ride on a water-craft, there will be a very limited amount of available seats on rafts. PLEASE bring a LIFE JACKET!!! Please arrive early and properly dressed (river appropriate life jacket, water shoes, river attire, etc.) and we will try to find you a ride. Trash bags, trash pick-up sticks, and gloves will be provided.
