Volunteer, and get your hands dirty

CARBONDALE – Looking for some volunteer cleanup work in the Roaring Fork Valley?

Here’s a glance at a few opportunities on the horizon:

• Crystal River Clean-up – Registration is from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday at Sopris Park in Carbondale.

Volunteers will receive a map of the cleanup areas, trash bags and a small “best of trash” card. Different cleanup areas will be assigned to spread out the volunteers. At the end of the morning, bags can be left at designated spots, and organizers will come and dispose of them. Prizes will be awarded for three “Best of Trash” categories.

For more details, contact Elk Mountain Expeditions LLC at 970-456-6287.

• Prince Creek Clean-up – Begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, with volunteers meeting at the red barn on the right side of Prince Creek, about one mile up Prince Creek Road off Highway 133, south of Carbondale.

Make sure to bring work gloves, water and snacks. Work usually lasts until lunchtime. Participants are encouraged to bring their bikes for a ride afterward.

• Basalt Post Office Landscaping Project- The date has yet to be announced for the project, which will take place at the post office in Basalt. The work will be held on two or three Saturdays, either in late spring or late summer, to remove existing plant materials, amend soil, backfill plots and replant. Volunteers will be expected to work four hours per day.

Those interested can contact Cathy at cathyclick@me.com to keep informed of the schedule once amendments and plants are received.
