Volunteers are needed to help clean up the Uncompahgre River Gorge above Ouray, where the Ouray Ice Park is located, on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. to noon with a free picnic event to follow.
We plan to remove log jams at the bottom of the gorge and pick up construction debris along the edge of the gorge. Please be prepared for rough terrain and some steep hiking up and down.
Who can come: everyone of all ages (as long as parents accompany children), but please leave your furry friends at home
What to bring: proper clothing for mid-September weather in Ouray (layers, pants and layers on top), closed-toed shoes, gloves, and a water bottle. Optional: sunscreen, insect repellent, and depending on weather rain gear.
