Riverblitz returns to Carlsbad for 22nd year Saturday

Delayed by COVID-19 in March, Eddy County’s 22nd annual Riverblitz trash cleanup is Saturday, said Keep Carlsbad Beautiful Director Mary Garwood.

She’d hoped this year’s edition would have its normal spot, the first Saturday in March, but it was delayed as the pandemic brought restrictions on large public gatherings. 

Riverblitz starts Saturday at 7 a.m. at the Riverwalk Recreation Center where volunteers will receive materials like trash bags and other items to use in the cleanup and then head out to areas along the Pecos River to pick up trash. 

“I just wanted to see how our color coding would go,” Garwood said.

Loosened restrictions in New Mexico’s Red to Green COVID-19 framework in the past few months allowed for more events to resume in 2021 after pauses last year.
