Join the Santa Fe Watershed Association for our three Community Cleanup Days! Spread throughout the year, these days are great days to bring your friends and family out to your favorite spot along the River or an arroyo and spend some time cleaning it up. Meet fellow watershed lovers, and help make our community a little happier, healthier, and more beautiful.
During COVID our work has not stopped, but we have adapted our events to socially-distanced opportunities that take place over three days. Register and sign our safety waiver online in advance, and get entered in our raffle to win great prizes!
Love Your River Day
Love Your River Day has been happening every February since 2006! This is our biggest cleanup event of the year, where we set up shop at Frenchy’s Field Barn with donuts and coffee to entice our wonderful volunteers. Usually the Saturday closest to Valentine’s Day, this is a great way to express your love and appreciation for our wonderful Santa Fe River and its tributary arroyos.
Summer River/Arroyo Rescue
Join us for a mid-summer cleanup, and help keep our River and arroyos looking good for summertime fun. Come register at Alto Park, grab some snacks and coffee, and put your name in the raffle!
Hunt for Red Rocktober
This is SFWA’s annual fall cleanup, taking place on a Saturday near Halloween and set up at Alto Park. In addition to all registrants getting signed up for the raffle, all volunteers who find red rocks as they’re cleaning can take a picture or return the rocks to put more tickets in the raffle. Volunteers who find the special skull rock automatically win one of the raffle prizes!
