National Public Lands Day 2020 is upon us! This year CHLT is helping continue the long tradition of NPLD here in Grand County, and we would love your support in doing so! We know this year has been different, but that doesn't mean our love for our public lands has changed. This year we will have four (4) projects throughout the county benefitting not only recreators on our public lands, but all residents and visitors to our county.
With the restrictions of this year, we are requiring all participants to pre-register in order to work on one of the four projects. Please register here: https://bit.ly/npldgc2020

The four projects are:
Upper Colorado River Cleanup (BLM): Join the BLM in the 11th Annual River Cleanup, clearing trash and debris along a 19 mile stretch of the Colorado River in three sections, beginning at Pumphouse Recreation Area to Two Rivers. All work is accessed by floating the river. Space is available for approximately 50 volunteers who do not have their own boats with pre-registration highly recommended. If you are providing your own boat, then pre-registration is not necessary. Volunteers can meet at Pumphouse Recreation Area. This is a family-friendly work site. Participants are encouraged to bring their own boats, PFDs, and/or paddles. For more information or to pre-register, contact John Monkouski at (970) 724-3040. Skill rating: EASY TO MODERATE
