Arkansas Headwater Recreation Area
The 26th Annual Arkansas River Cleanup and Colorado Public Lands Day.
“In May 2016, the Colorado General Assembly passed a bill establishing the third Saturday in May as “Colorado Public Lands Day”. The bill passed with bipartisan support and was signed into law by Governor Hickenlooper. The purpose of this new holiday is to celebrate the significant contributions that national, state, and local public lands within Colorado make to wildlife, outdoor recreation, the economy, and to Coloradans’ quality of life.
Colorado is the first state in the nation to establish its own public lands day with the inaugural event being celebrated on May 20, 2017.”
Therefore it was requested of The Arkansas Headwater to change our Arkansas River Cleanup/Greenup (CUGU) to Saturday, May 20th in honor of the first annual Colorado Public Lands Day. More details coming soon.
