Join Us for Our Earth Day 5K Trash Walk

Pagosa Springs, CO – Volunteers make a difference!

This year, Step Outdoors has two projects. The first is our traditional 5K trash walk. Participants will be assigned a 1.5-mile section of road to walk gathering the unsightly trash from the winter polluters.

The Hot Spot project is new in 2017 and is a collaboration with Pagosa Area Trails Council (PATC). Interested participants will carpool to a local shooting area to clean the micro trash and bullets and bullets and more bullets. Volunteers for the Hot Spot project are encouraged to bring a garden/leaf rake.

This is one of many events being held during the Earth Week celebration. Participants meet at 9:00am at the Archuleta County Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 22. Everyone should be done by 12:00pm.

Individuals who confirm before Saturday that they will be attending are invited to a simple BBQ after the clean-up. Donation dishes are accepted. Bring gloves, water and wear comfortable walking shoes. Long pants and shirts are recommended. Trash bags are provided. Prizes and goodies for all participants.

Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 and continues as a movement to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action. This community project is focused on continuing to promote a more sustainable community and respect for our landscape.
