2023 RIVER REACH FOUNDATION PROJECTS
The River Reach Foundation has scheduled several new projects for this year. Some of our projects are the same as in the past, such as trail clean-up and maintenance. The Foundation plans to hold at least two park and trail clean-up events. One will be held on May 13 (two weekends before Riverfest) and will include the Animas floating river clean-up. The second one will be held in the fall, possibly in late September or early October.
Other projects planned include the removal of dangerous concrete debris and old tires in both the Animas and San Juan Rivers, tree stump carvings along the trails in the park, a tree wrapping event to combat beaver damage to the trails, a fishing derby for children, and the production of a calendar showing photos of life and activity along the trails. The tree wrapping event will be held around Arbor or Earth Day. Stay tuned through the River Reach Foundation website and Facebook page for more information on the fishing derby and tree stump carvings.
2023 RIVER REACH FOUNDATION CALENDAR
Board member, Earleen Dudley, will be heading up the calendar project. She will be asking the public to submit photos they have taken this past year and in 2023 of people, animals, or scenery along the trails. Rafting trips, family outings, graduation pictures, encounters with the wildlife, seasonal scenery, and pictures taken at events are requested. The only thing you have to remember is that the pictures need to be along the river trail between Animas Park off Browning Parkway and the Among the Waters Trail at the Bisti Highway.
Pictures taken while rafting along the San Juan River between McGee Park and Kirtland are also allowed. Recognition of the photographer will be included on the calendar. More information will be available through both the website and Facebook page – and future Ripples newsletters. You can also contact Earleen at (909) 520-5887 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
