Call for Volunteers!
Volunteers are needed to help clean up Rollans Park in Ridgway for the Adopt-a-Park Program on Saturday, June 13, from 9 a.m. to noon. UWP has adopted this important park that protects and provides access to the Uncompahgre River. We make an annual effort to pick up litter and branches, and do other maintenance around the park. This event is supported by the Town of Ridgway, American Rivers, and the National River Cleanup.
Who can come: everyone of all ages, as long as parents accompany children; we are limiting the volunteer number to 9 people to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. We ask that all volunteers wear masks at the start when we discuss tasks for the day. Then, while working, we can separate into smaller groups and stay 6 feet away from each other so we can take off our masks. We encourage family members to join us so you can volunteer together.
What to bring: work gloves, rakes and clippers (we have extras if needed); appropriate clothing to keep you comfy and happy while you work on the riverbanks and in the park (even in the rain if weather turns wet); sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottle, friends, kids, but please leave your furry friends at home; depending on public health orders at that time, we may ask you to wear a mask as well.
What we’ll bring: snacks and drinking water
