A few weeks ago, some of the guides from New Mexico River Adventures took it upon themselves to clean up the famous Racecourse stretch of the Rio Grande. The Racecourse is the most popular section of river on the Upper Rio Grande, consisting of a dozen fun, class 2-4 rapids. New Mexico River Adventures offers half and full day trips daily on this stretch from April 1st to Oct. 1st.
They made there way downstream slowly looking for any and all types of trash on the side of the river. After a full day of searching and collecting, there was quite a bounty consisting of multiple coolers and trash bags full of trash and recyclables. For these guides it was quite an accomplishment as they enjoy this stretch nearly everyday of the summer and take great pride in their home stretch of river, The Racecourse.
Thanks to Sean, Wendy, Garret, Jenne and Nicole for doing such a great job and helping to keep the Wild and Scenic Rio Grande, wild and scenic!
