West Denver Trout Unlimited Annual Stream Cleanup
7/24/2014
Credit:
Colorado Trout Unlimited
Congregate at the Mt. Tool and Feed Store (Mountain Gateway Mercantile) parking lot. Take exit 243 from I-70 (Central City Gateway Highway). The West Denver TU chuck wagon will be there.

Things to bring:

– waders for crossing the stream or retrieve trash among rocks in the stream

bottom or stream bank .

– gloves for your safety.

– pinchers/grabbers to reach unreachable areas.

– folding chair if you have one and would like to sit for lunch.

– hat/cap – sunscreen

– radios or cell phones for communication – there NOW is cell phone service.

– water bottles – can be filled at the feed store.

Schedule:

*** juice & coffee & energy snacks at 9:00 – 10:00

*** sign waivers

*** pick up orange safety vests and orange trash bags

*** divide into groups/teams to work both sides of Clear Creek only if access is safe!!

10:00 – Teams will be driven to sites/pull-outs then picked up at the next pull out, either up or down stream. We will be working up stream from Mayhem Gulch toward the Feed Store parking lot.

CDOT is planning to have “Shoulder Work Ahead” signs along the area we will be “de-trashing” – hopefully the signs will cause the traffic to drive slower and help them become more alert.

Back to the chuck wagon as teams finish, to brag about the best find.

Lunch – 11:30 ish (provided). There is a fund raiser cook-out planned for the Feed Store customers so the grill will be ready any time you choose to eat.



Call Jackie for questions/concerns or to be added to the volunteer list.
