Volunteers clean up Rio Grande

Eight Adams State students and community members participated in the Rio Grande River Clean-up on April 24th, braving the blustery weather and cool temps to pick up trash accumulated near the water that would otherwise end up in the river and impact wildlife and water quality. This activity was part of Adams State University’s Earth Week, which continues this week through April 29th with various activities that celebrate and acknowledge sustainability.
