Volunteers needed for Clifton Nature Park clean-up

It's back! Get ready to join Mesa County Noxious Weed & Pest Management and fellow community members at the Clifton Nature Park for clean-up events!

Clifton Nature Park is a Mesa County open space at 32 1/4 Road and D Road that has a connection to the Riverfront Trail and is very popular with fishermen and bird watchers (blue herons, osprey and barn owls can be seen here!) as well as people wanting to get out and get some fresh air.

Mesa County and RiversEdge West (formerly the Tamarisk Coalition) are coordinating continued efforts to keep the weeds at bay, promote native species growth, and encourage the community to get involved to keep the park clean and safe.

In 2017, Alpine Bank, Target, Ducks Unlimited, Toxic Calls, United Way and others joined us for our first series of successful volunteer events. Several trailer loads full of tumbleweeds, trash, and tamarisk cuttings were removed, which made a noticeable difference in the cleanliness and aesthetics of the park.

If your group or business would like to sponsor a volunteer workday, we would love to speak with you!
