With river flows decreasing and tubing season underway, the City of Steamboat Springs and other river advocates are requesting that all user groups RESPECT THE YAMPA. The campaign is a continued effort to educate the public on how to responsibly recreate on the river and minimize impacts to the health of the river and other recreationalists.

Volunteer groups will organize river cleanups during the summer months to clean up trash and litter from those not following river etiquette. For those interested in volunteering in cleanup days, please contact the City’s Parks and Community Services Department (879-4300). Please protect your river and give everyone a chance to enjoy it.
