We are pleased to announce that the US Forest Service Dalton Day Area gates have been opened and the picnic area is officially open to the public. For the past few years Forest Service budget issues have not provided for staff to clean this picnic area. Due to its popularity to the public, the Upper Pecos Watershed Association (UPWA) has committed to a multi-year volunteer agreement with the Forest Service to maintain the cleanliness of the Dalton Day Area. On a weekly basis, while the gates are open, UPWA volunteers clean litter and trash in and around the river.
Additionally, UPWA will install portable toilets in the Day Use Area during peak use months.
We would love you to join us in our weekly Friday morning trash pick ups. Watch our Facebook events for clean up times.
