Steamboat Alliance Announces Schedule of 2021 Litter Cleanup Events

Steamboat Alliance logoLocal residents Rob Helms and Laura, and Warren Westrup are part of a group known as the “Steamboat Alliance.” The Alliance has recently announced a series of roadside litter cleanup events for 2021. You may have seen this group picking up litter along Steamboat Island Road and elsewhere.

The events are fun, providing a nice opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and do some good at the same time. All litter pickup equipment is provided; you should dress according to the weather, bring some gloves, sturdy footwear, something to drink, and a snack.

The events typically begin at 9 AM and end at 12 noon, and you’re welcome to leave any time before noon if you need to.

With some exceptions, the group generally meets up at 9 AM in the gravel lot across Steamboat Island Road from the Steamboat Tennis & Athletic Club. They then carpool to the cleanup location, if necessary.

All dates are subject to change, but here are the planned dates as of this time:
Saturday, April 10th
Sunday, April 25 (call Laura Westrup at (360) 915-6662 for the meetup location)
Saturday, May 8th
