Highway 285 spring clean-up
May 20th, 10am-noon

We’re doing our semi-annual Highway 285 cleanup on May 20th. It starts at 10am at the 1806 Rest Stop (sometimes called the Christmas Rest Stop, click here for directions), mile marker 132, about 1 – 1.5 miles south of where State Road 291 cuts off toward Salida. If we have enough people (10 – 12) it only takes about 1 – 1.5 hours. Bring gloves and sunscreen. The chapter supplies pick up tools and big orange bags. (Some people bring a stick or something to hold the orange bag open.)

In addition to the highway cleanup, the 20th is also AHRA Clean Up/ Green Up day. We will have badges for all participants so they can enjoy the AHRA lunch at Salida’s River Park starting at noon.

If you will participate contact Jim Impara by email attwopi@hughes.netor by phone at 719-221-9581.

Thanks for your help.
