Vail Daily letter: Another great river cleanup

Great 17th annual Eagle River Watershed Council River Cleanup!

The fish were scrambling all about as 50 teams of volunteers were out there in Gore Creek, the Eagle River and the Colorado River cleaning up their home sites. It was a wonderful turnout and a gorgeous day to be wading around enjoying the rivers’ beauty. Many thanks to you all who took part – we couldn’t do it without you. After the water fun, a great barbecue was put on by the Arrowhead Broken Arrow Club headed up by Bob Moroney and Stew Hinton. Yummy food!

The ERWC is very grateful for their sponsors of this event presented by Vail Resorts Echo.
