Volunteers needed!

In honor of Earth Day, let's clean up 4 miles of the Rio Grande. In November 2015, 13 of us cleaned up the 6 mile stretch of the river from Algodones Dam to US550. In just under 4 hours, our team cleaned up over 1,400 lbs of trash! Help us continue the clean up!

We will meet at the SE parking lot of US550 and the river at 10am (Directions below). Waste Management will bring some dumpsters to the site. The plan is to clean up the SE corner of US550 and the river area before paddling down the river.

After cleaning up the US550 area, those who are interested will kayak/canoe/SUP/raft down the river from US550 to River's Edge II in Rio Rancho. We'll pick up as much trash as possible from the river during the paddle. We will run the shuttle for cars AFTER cleaning up the US550 area and BEFORE paddling down the river.

Your help is needed! Some of our adaptive paddling participants will be joining us and the more people on the river, the safer everyone will be.

KNM will document the cleanup with photos, videos and GPS coordinates and will send the information to the ACA's Club Stewardship Program. We'll weigh the material and record recyclables, landfill, etc and report the data to the ACA National Trash Track campaign.

This event is sponsored by the following companies:

* New Mexico Kayak Instruction, Inc.
