Rio Grande River clean up this weekend

Do something good for the environment this weekend and join hundreds of volunteers in the Rio Grande River clean up. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Rotary Club picnic area on the north east side of the Central Ave Bridge, this Sat. May 21, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The clean up is part of  National River Clean Up 2011 and is sponsored by the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division, American Rivers, the West Central Alliance of Neighborhoods, REI, the Rotary Club of Albuquerque, Kirkland Air Force Base Outdoor Recreation and the Open Space Alliance.

Volunteers will be participating in cleaning up the Bosque by foot, guided raft or their own boat. Graffiti removal on and around the bridge is also included in the clean up. Volunteers are asked to pre-register at REI by phone 505-247-1191 or online at www.rei.com/albuquerque . All volunteers will be treated to a free meal and a prize drawing starting at 12:30 p.m.
