Community Clean-Up and Celebration

Words by Zoe Dohnal / Community, Environment, Event

Join Town of Mountain Village’s Green Team in cleaning up our trails and ski-runs in Mountain Village, Saturday, August 25 from 12 to 2 p.m. Clean up will be followed by a community-wide party in the Meadows Park, located adjacent from the Meadows parking lot on Adams Ranch Road. Music will be provided by the infamous DJ Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Volunteers are asked to arrive by 11:30 a.m. for registration and groups will be assigned an area of clean-up by a Green Team member at Meadows’s Park. Trash bags are provided, and participants are encouraged to bring gloves, wear long pants, comfortable shoes, and park at the Meadows parking lot (carpooling is encouraged!) Fabulous prizes will be awarded for various trash discoveries. Thanks to thoughtful donations from Telluride Ski Resort, Telluride Sports, the Telluride Trappings & Toggery, Poachers Pub, Tracks Cafe & Bar, Starbucks, Town of Mountain Village Owner’s Association (TMVOA), and others, prizes include a GoPro Hero4, Osprey Exos backpack, Grand Trunk Parachute Hammock, August Ink Sweatshirt and more!

Lunch will be provided for those who attend, and we ask participants to bring reusable plates and cups.

The inaugural event is intended to spread awareness of picking up trash when found, celebrating the beauty of where we live, and taking steps to keep our mountains clean and trash free!

All are welcome to join and take part in the Community Clean-Up Event. For more information on the event, please visit Town of Mountain Village’s Green Team.
