Salt River Tubing ‘Heroes = Litter Zero’ event Sept. 2-5

Celebrate a cool and refreshing floating beach blast adventure on Labor Day holiday weekend at Salt River Tubing.

Beat the heat and ‘chill and thrill’ on the refreshing mountain-stream waters of the Salt River’s rocking rapids in the 27th Annual “Salt River Heroes = Litter Zero” event. The Take Pride in America litter prevention initiative kicks off the Labor Day holiday weekend 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Sept. 2-5, with the latest tube rental at 1 p.m., according to a release.

The cost is $21 plus tax per person or tube, which includes tube rental, shuttle bus ride and free customer parking at Salt River Tubing.

Salt River Tubing, LIVE 101.5 and KMLE Country 107.9 radio stations will be encouraging floaters to “lend a hand on their public lands” and stash their picnic trash in the free litter bags distributed by Salt River Tubing.

Salt River Tubing is in northeast Mesa, just minutes from Loop 202 East and the North Power Road Exit 23A in Tonto National Forest.

“Show your Patriotic Pride and be a public lands steward while enjoying the recreational paradise in the ‘mini-Grand Canyon’ of Tonto National Forest,” Henri Breault, president/CEO of Salt River Tubing, said. “Tubers have ‘stashed and bagged’ their picnic trash in our free Tommy Tuber litter bags for the past 26 years and have contributed greatly in protecting and conserving the Lower Salt River’s natural resources. Catch a glimpse of the diverse wildlife including blue herons and the Salt River wild horses on the Salt River.”

Take Pride in America is a national partnership that aims to inspire a new generation of volunteers to put their love of country to work to improve our national parks, wildlife refuges, public lands, cultural and historic sites, playgrounds, and other recreation areas. Salt River Tubing has received a record four National Take Pride in America awards for the company’s conservation efforts in Tonto National Forest (1991, 2003, 2006 and 2010).

Salt River Tubing accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards and cash. Credit card and cash transactions require a valid driver’s license for tube rental deposit and credit card identification. Go to saltrivertubing.com.
