Vail Daily letter: Great river cleanup

Sue Mott
Volunteer Coordinator

What a gorgeous day it was last Saturday for the Eagle River Watershed Council’s “sweet 16” river/creek cleanup. Close to 50 teams took their sections, cleaning up the shores and water edges, collecting a lot of trash. One team found a Chevrolet Deluxe Master 1940s car, and another found a full patio set with a barbecue grill along with a ceramic deer butt ornament. Every team found something weird. A fun time was had by all volunteers, followed up by a great barbecue at the Wolcott Yacht club prepared by Team Alpine Club of Arrowhead.

Thanks so very much to the teams for their time and effort getting Eagle’s waterways clean again!

A wonderful event was put on by the ERWC.
