National River Cleanup Week at Verde River

Please join the Sierra Club in celebrating National River Cleanup Week and help protect the Verde River!  The Verde is one of the largest perennial streams in the Southwest and supports numerous native species, including the southwestern willow flycatcher, bald eagle, Arizona toad, and razorback sucker.  The river also provides outstanding recreational values, including boating, hiking, bird watching, and fishing and is a critical source of drinking water to Phoenix and other communities. American Rivers named the Verde as one of America's 10 most endangered rivers for 2006.

We will meet at the River Day Use Area off Owl Road (first right after entering the park).
