29th Annual Clean Up Green Up

May 16

In 1992 Colorado Governor Roy Romer declared May 9, 1992 as “Arkansas River Cleanup Day”. This was quite an honor, and we all been staying true to the intent of this Declaration for the past 25 years. On Saturday, May 16, 2018, it’s time again to clean up the Arkansas River and surrounding areas before the summer river season begins. Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (AHRA) and GARNA are teaming up for the 29th annual Arkansas River Clean Up Green Up.
