The River Cleanup on Sunday

Paddle a boat down the El Camino Trail of the Colorado River and pick up some trash along the way. A $100 value excursion for the gracious commitment fee of only $10! Can’t be beat! Not only are you getting the chance to impact your local environment by cleaning up the river, you are getting to explore nature at a fraction of the cost.
