UGRWCD THANKS GUNNISON WAVES AND VOLUNTEERS FOR RIVER CLEAN-UP DAY!

Special thank you to Jason Lakey, Andy Sovick and the rest of the Gunnison Waves, as well as all of the volunteers who came out to help with the 2nd Annual River Clean-up! Approximately 50 volunteers of all ages spent the morning cleaning up branches, leaves and trash at the Gunnison Whitewater Park. Afterwards, they enjoyed some burritos from Jermaine's, coffee from Tributary Coffee and a little action on the waves. The UGRWCD is proud to sponsor this event and would like to extend special thanks to Tributary Coffee for their donation of coffee and Gunnison County for help with trash disposal. Next time you're at the Whitewater Park enjoying watching the surfers, thank them for taking care of our beautiful river!
THANK YOU!
