We are optimists. REI is a co-op of 18 million people who believe you don't have to be a Park Ranger or a famous rock climber to enjoy nature and leave the outdoors better than you found it. We believe small steps add up to big changes. Join us as we #OptToAct. We will be collecting litter along The Rillito Loop path at La Canada/Flowing Wells & the Rillito. We've received permits to go INTO the riverbed and really clean up! Our last cleanup effort removed over 100 trash bags, shopping carts, crates and plastic from the riverbed! Garbage bags, gloves & trash-grabbers will be provided, we just need you to show up. Bring something to drink to stay hydrated. We will sweeten the deal with give-aways like REI stewardship t-shirts. REI's sign-in table will be located on the EAST side of La Canada/Flowing Wells, along the NORTH side of The Rillito. Off-street parking available on W Edgewater Drive as well as W Wheatridge Drive. The 'Opt to Act' Plan is 52 weeks of simple actions to help reduce your impact and leave the world better than you found it. Full details at www.REI.com/blog/stewardship/the-opt-to-act-plan. Join REI in making the fight for life outdoors part of your life.
