River Watchers Sample Clear Creek
April 22, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Colorado River Watch (CRW)
is a cooperative program between the Colorado Watershed Assembly and the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). CRW organizes periodic water and invertebrate sampling from a large number of the Colorado’s streams and rivers. A multitude of organizations participate, including schools, various Trout Unlimited chapters, and other nonprofit organizations.
West Denver TU’s efforts are led by member Gil Hassinger, who says “It seems like a very long time since we have collected water samples on Clear Creek. Sampling will now occur on Wednesdays, as requested by the volunteers. The next sampling is on Wednesday, April 22, 9:00am. Yes, it’s a Wednesday, so mark your calendars.”
Parking is located at Mayhem Gulch, approximately 9.3 miles up Clear Creek Canyon from the intersection of 6th Ave and Highway 58 in Golden. Parking is limited, so it pays to be on time. If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer with the River Watch program, please email Gil at or call him at 303-980-5616 (home) or 303-921-9522 (cell).
