All Local, All The Time

LOBO Trail Clean-up

Are you interested in volunteering on Earth Day? Then join the Rotary Club of Niwot and the Rotaract Club of Longmont on Friday, April 22 at 3:30 p.m. to pick up trash on the Longmont-Boulder (LOBO) Trail. The clubs will be meeting at the Lefthand Valley Grange Park at the corner of Niwot Road and 83rd Street.

Club members expect the clean-up project to take up to two hours. There are ample parking and bathroom facilities at the park. The clubs will start at the park, hike south on the trail, and may also be able to clean up the Niwot Loop Trail, depending upon the number of volunteers.

If you volunteer, remember to dress for the weather: wear good hiking shoes, bring gloves, wear sunscreen, and bring your own water. Boulder County Parks & Open Space will provide trash bags, pick-up tools, and extra gloves.

After the day's work is over, the clubs will attend a social gathering at the Wheel House, located in downtown Niwot at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Murray Street.

The Rotaract Club of Longmont is a newly organized social service organization led by Bryndis Crider and Katrina Stroud. According to the national rotary website, Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18 and older to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.

Rotary and Rotaract members often work together on projects that benefit local communities. Rotaract clubs are designed to enable young people to make new friends, and to make a positive contribution to the community. If you are interested in joining, volunteer at the LOBO trail or email [email protected].
