Trash Crush to returns to Northstar Preserve on June 2

Staff report

The second annual Trash Crush community clean-up and environmental stewardship event is set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 2.

Participants will meet at main Northstar Preserve south gate parking lot.

Hosted by Erik Skarvan of Sun Dog Athletics and Todd Shaver of the Bull Market Report, Trash Crush is a volunteer effort to clean up litter along the Northstar Nature Preserve and nearby roadways and raise awareness about caring for public lands and nature.

The event partners with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program and is sponsored by The Aspen Times and Pitkin County Landfill, which will supply all volunteers with state-of-the-art reusable beverage containers.

The first 24 volunteers will receive a complimentary lunch afterward courtesy of partner Meat and Cheese Restaurant and Farm Shop. Everyone in the community is welcome to take part and is asked to bring work gloves and extra clothing in case of inclement weather. Registration is not necessary.
