Jr Devo Does Animas Trash Pick

  |   U14 DEVO Boys and Girls, Uncategorized

Thanks again girls for showing up to Devo in the rain ready to help and support our Animas River by picking up trash along the banks. Everyone had a colorful rain coat on, thank you parents for helping them have the right gear. We sure found a few interesting items! Ask your girls…. Each of them filled a bag, fortunately we didn’t find as much trash as we thought we would, thats a good thing. Half way through the sun came out and it was beautiful! Love that Colorado weather.
