The Rio de Flag is Flagstaff's river. Like many rivers and streams in the Southwest, "the Rio" appears as a dry wash for most of the year. But when winter storms roll through Flag, and monsoon seasons pick up, the Rio flows through town and makes its way to San Francisco Wash, a tributary to the Little Colorado River.
We will host a Rio de Flag cleanup event and mini-citizen science workshop (bring your smart phone!). The citizen science workshop will be held from 4:30PM - 5:15PM. The cleanup will follow and we will wrap up by 7PM.
Contact Chelsea Silva at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
Location: Meet at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center (additional parking available at police station east of the center).
Note: Please dress for weather. Long pants and close-toed shoes recommended. Bring a smart phone and a water bottle. Gloves, trash bags, and trash grabbers will be available for use. Please follow instructions to download and install the Arizona Water Watch phone app prior to the event.
