Volunteers to clean up 3 miles of Colorado River Saturday

Around 80 volunteers will pick up trash along 3 miles of the lower Colorado River along the Black Canyon National Water Trail by canoe, kayak, foot and diving between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday.

Volunteers will join with the National Park Service, Forever Resorts and the Lower Colorado Water Trail Alliance, a group of public agencies, local businesses, nonprofits and citizens who protect, enhance and promote Black Canyon, to cleanup and enhance the Black Canyon National Water Trail in preparation for the busy summer season.

For the safety of divers and other volunteers, boats will not be able to launch from Willow Beach from 10-11 a.m., and fishing will not be allowed from the pier from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Additionally, Forever Resorts, which operates recreation concessions at the park, will help the National Park Service mark its centennial with cake.
