A suspected gender reveal left blue confetti and trash all over a certain part in Castlewood Canyon State Park caused the poor park staff to clean it up for more than four hours.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife asks park visitors to be considerate to the environment and the people who are tasked to maintain the state parks. They are encouraging everyone to practice “leave no trace”.

This wasn’t the first time it has happened. A couple of weeks ago, the same thing happened.

CPW asks park visitors to leave no trace, which means:

  • Stay on the trails.
  • Dispose of trash and use restroom facilities.
  • Leave the park’s natural features, like flowers and rocks, as you found them.
  • Observe wildlife from a distance and don’t feed animals.
  • Don’t start any fires and properly dispose of smoking materials.

Everyone is asked to be more considerate and to practice the leave no trace when visiting state parks.
