!!! A Cleaner Clear IV !!!

No kidding. The 4th annual Clear Creek river cleanup is on the calendar. I know, how can we already be thinking about this? Well, because trash buildups happen every minute and we are behind, constantly. But never fear! You all have made an incredible difference over the last three years and as the word continues to get out, the difference you have made continues to be inspiring! Sign up below!

Last year we had a record turnout, and cleaned up twice as much area as we had in the past. Adams County continues to support our efforts in the most incredible ways and the sponsor list continues to grow. The gratitude we have for these like minded folks can’t be expressed enough, but they will have to settle for a post or two and a hand-written thank you card. They all know what we are doing isn’t easy but is 100% necessary.

It is such a pleasure to walk down the bike path or stalk huge carp in the creek and see the difference we have made. Yet, every year spring runoff and the occasional flash flood exhumes tires and weird shit from decades of neglect. Which is why we return year after year to work our butts off to put the “clear” back in Clear Creek.

So put October 7 on your calendar and pass the word to your friends and neighbors. Free food, cold drinks, cleaning up your earth, and building community. What the hell else could you ask for on a Saturday?

More to come as the year progresses and sponsors sign up. It’s the best time you can have doing a little volunteering.

Sign up below! See you in October!

I grew up in the middle of nowhere Texas. The nearest Walmart was a full two hours away. My family still runs a ranch back home that I grew up on, but at some point in my treasured youth I hung up the idea of becoming a cowboy, and pursued my passion for architecture. Today I still find myself trying to fit in to a life that has treated me with the average ups and downs one can expect after a certain number of years. My wife and I moved to Denver after attending Texas Tech School of Architecture in Lubbock as we needed a grade change from the Llano Estacado. We camp with our three growing girls all summer and into the fall while I write and create and fly fish to maintain sanity. Life is moving fast as our careers and children progress in all areas, so being outdoors with each other keeps us mostly grounded.
