A Successful Water Day Event

River cleanup

Animas River Spring Cleaning.

We have just wrapped up No Impact Week here at the EC. The final event took place last Saturday, the Durango community came together at Rotary Park, to unite around the river. Fifty people came out to clean up the Animas, listen to great tunes, and spend a great day in the park. The amount of trash which was collected was surprising, but it was great to see what a few motivated community members could collect. After the event all the trash was sorted between recycling and trash, while listening to the Poetic Minds. The most exciting pieces of trash included a traffic cone, assorted reusable jackets, and some historic blacksmith material. Thanks to everyone who came out to clean up the river, and we hope to see you all and more next year.
