The sixth annual Roaring Fork River Cleanup will start at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 9, with registration sites in Aspen at Jaffee Park in Woody Creek Canyon; Basalt at Lions Park next to the library; Carbondale, in front of the Days Inn; and in Glenwood Springs at Two Rivers Park.

Volunteers will be sent out in teams with trash bags to clean up along the river. Volunteers will not be encouraged to get in the river unless they are seasoned waders and come equipped for wading in the river. Some teams will clean up more than one area on the river. Please dress appropriately for a morning outside. This is a family event and we recognize our youngest helpers for their efforts. Please don’t forget to bring gloves, raincoat, water, bug repellent and sunscreen.

At 11:30 a.m. everyone should be leaving their cleanup sites and making their way to Arbaney Park for our Volunteer Appreciation BBQ. Lunch will be served at noon followed by the Best of Trash Awards.

Climbing Magazine presents the Reel Rock Film Tour as a benefit for the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, a volunteer organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for ovarian cancer research and awareness programs.

The Sept. 7 event will be hosted by Carbondale’s Crystal Theatre, with a pre-event wine tasting and appetizers at Grana Cafe from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The show will launch the world premier of two groundbreaking new climbing films by the top producers in the industry: “Dosage Volume IV,” by Josh Lowell, and “First Ascent,” by Peter Mortimer. All the proceeds will go to the HERA Foundation; tickets are $25 and can be purchased at Climbing Magazine; call 963-9449 for more information.

A silent auction/raffle to benefit the HERA Foundation will precede the film premiers.

Anglers who buy a one-day fishing license in Colorado and who plan to fish at a state wildlife area are reminded that they must also obtain a wildlife habitat stamp. The Colorado habitat stamp program is new in 2006. Income from the stamp will be used to protect and improve wildlife habitat throughout the state.

A habitat stamp is needed by anyone from 19-64 years old who enters a state wildlife area. Anglers who bring family members to a state wildlife area must be sure to purchase the needed stamps. The cost of a stamp is $10.25 when purchased alone and includes the Colorado search and rescue fee.
