Event description
Join United By Blue for a cleanup of the South Platt River!

About this Event

Saving the world isn't easy. Starting is.

Join United By Blue and REI Co-op as we start with one waterway at a time. On November 16th, we'll be cleaning up the riverbanks of the South Platt from Fishback Park and we invite you to join us! Come out and volunteer with us by picking up trash before it has the chance to enter the river, where it is harder to recover and a greater threat to wildlife.

Meet us in Fishback Park to get geared up and meet your volunteer team. We'll clean the park trail system and along the riverbanks. Following the cleanup, games and educational initiative will be available for volunteers to play, with United By Blue prizes for game winners. All volunteers will go home with a United By Blue stainless steel water bottle as well. All cleanup supplies will be provided onsite.

Please wear long pants and closed toe shoes with good traction. Family friendly, and all ages and abilities are welcome.

This cleanup is part of a month of weekly cleanups hosted by REI and United By Blue on waterways all over the country as we count down to #OptOutside day (some people know it as Black Friday). This year, we encourage everyone to not only #OptOutside, but also #OptToAct - take action to protect the outdoor and natural spaces we love.
