Raft the Rio Volunteers Needed

The Southwest Environmental Center’s fifteenth annual Raft the Rio will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2012 on the Rio Grande, near Las Cruces. The family-friendly event is open to individuals and teams of all ages willing to get wet and have fun. Creativity and the use of discarded materials in building rafts are highly encouraged.

The three-mile rafting adventure will begin at La Llorona Park beneath the Picacho Street bridge, and end just upstream from the Calle del Norte Bridge (“Mesilla Bridge”). There will be refreshments, food vendors and live music at the Finish Line Festival.

We are looking for volunteers to help with a number of tasks including, but no limited to, registration, tabling, parking, loading/unloading, safety, and cleanup. Please let me know if you can help that day. It really is a blast.

Please ask your friends, families, classmates, students, etc if they would also like to help.

You can contact us at (575) 522-5552  or email  jason@wildmesquite.org

Thanks for all that you do!
