Boat ramp gets spring cleaning

Sections: Letters Published

Dear Editor:

An 8:30am start, coffee, pastries, fruit, rock bars, loppers, pole saws, waders, willows, award-winning bread pudding and more. If you passed by the Carbondale boat ramp on Saturday, May 6, 2017, these are a few things you would have seen as over 60 volunteers converged to revamp the boat ramp at the Bob Terrell State Wildlife Area and Boat Ramp on the Roaring Fork River in Carbondale.

Trees and vegetation were trimmed, raft tie-ups were installed, and a user-friendly access trail came into being; allowing river recreationalists, from anglers to paddlers, to efficiently share this gateway to one of our most precious natural resources.

Major thanks to all of the partners on this great work day: Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, Roaring Fork Conservancy, RFC River Stewards, Colorado Division of Wildlife, Town of Carbondale, Roaring Fork Fishing Guide Alliance, Roaring Fork Valley Fly Fishing Club, Trout Unlimited – Ferdinand Hayden Chapter, and Red Rock Diner. And extra special thanks to all of the community volunteers that came out on a beautiful Saturday morning to help improve this often busy spot for the benefit of all river enthusiasts!
