Volunteers are needed to cleanup litter along the Arkansas River in Pueblo Saturday. The Nature and Raptor Center will host dozens of volunteers starting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 8th .
"The Arkansas is so important to our community that we've got to do our part to protect it, for us and for future generations. Keeping it clean is one way that citizens can do their part for this river we all love," said Jay Zarr, NRCP Board President and volunteer.

National River Cleanup, sponsored by American Rivers, is a series of community-based stream cleanups happening nationwide. This annual event raises public awareness of the magnitude of trash accumulating in our nation's waterways. Tens of thousands of volunteers are expected to participate.
