Volunteers find little trash at Rocky Mountain National Park

DENVER (AP) — Volunteers have stepped forward to help clean up Rocky Mountain National Park during the partial federal shutdown.

But The Denver Post reports that volunteers over the weekend found little to clean.

After reading news stories about trash and dirty bathrooms at the park, Canon City resident Jason Moore, along with local chapters of the Libertarian Party of Colorado, organized a Facebook event to clean up the waste.

But when he arrived Sunday morning at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, he found “immaculate” bathrooms and facilities covered only in snow.

Moore says the Fall River Visitor Center was also clean.

Moore says it seems other groups have been cleaning the park during the shutdown, including another group that cleaned the Longs Peak trailhead on Saturday and found little litter.
