Join organizers from the Ouray Ice Park and Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership to help restore the natural resources in the Uncompahgre River Gorge. Historic use by the early settlers left mining, railroad and other industrial debris, while more recent gorge visitors left construction debris scattered around – all of which was mostly cleaned up during the 2018 Love Your Gorge event. This year, we are working on a plan to find ways for the plant life to flourish and the water quality to improve. More information coming by the end of August.
This event is partially funded by the Frank L. Massard Trust, and affiliated with American Rivers National River Cleanup and Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup.
You’ll want to join us this year – we’re a fun group! Please wear layers as the morning and shadowy canyon (all day) can be cold but the sun is intense. Wear sturdy shoes (hiking boots would be great), sunscreen, gloves, and a hat and/or sunglasses.
This event is open to ages 12 and up. Minors (under 18) must be accompanied by an adult or provide a waiver signed by their parent or guardian.
