Earth Day Cleanup 2024

04/22/2024 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM MT


Join SCCA and Canyons of the Ancients Park Rangers this Earth Day to help clean up the places we love.

Monday, April 22, 2024 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

9:00 a.m. Meet at the Castle Rock (original Sand Canyon trailhead parking area). We will start with a special presentation with BLM staff. 

10:00 a.m. Tailgate safety talk and clean-up day information at Sand Canyon Parking Lot (original, find the blue Dodge Ram BLM truck)

Following the safety talk we'll regroup and branch out to different areas along County Rd. G for a roadside clean-up. Some will stay at Sand Canyon Trail head, some will go towards Rincon and find safe areas to park and walk along road side. 

Clean-up will conclude by 12:00 p.m.  Meet back at Sand Canyon Trailhead to dispose of e-waste and trash with Amala at the Blue Dodge Ram BLM truck.

Trash bags, gloves and light refreshments will be provided. 

Please wear layers, sturdy shoes, hat and sunglasses. Don't forget to bring sunscreen and a water bottle!

We greatly appreciate your time and energy! We are looking forward to a great Earth Day made possible by awesome folks like YOU who come together to do something good for the planet and our local public lands!
