Celebrate a fabulous Fourth of July holiday weekend with a floating beach blast at Salt River Tubing’s fan favorite, “Bag it for Bucks,” a Take Pride in America special event 8:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. July 2-4.
Salt River Tubing is in northeast Mesa on Power Road, just seven minutes from Loop 202 East exit 23A, on North Power Road in Tonto National Forest.
Free patriotic leis will be given out while supplies last, according to a release.
The cost of tube rental is $21 plus tax per person or tube which includes inner tube rental, shuttle bus service and free parking. 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 employees.
Salt River Tubing will be rewarding public land stewards with Star-Spangled $Bucks, a $7 tube rental discount coupon as a token of appreciation for floaters’ conservation efforts while stashing and bagging their picnic trash in litter bags.
Tubers can trade in full litter bags at the end of their floating adventure for a $7 tube rental discount coupon that is valid on their next visit to Salt River Tubing. The coupon is valid seven days a week beginning July 5 through Aug. 21, 2022. To date, 876 tons of trash has been “stashed & bagged” on the Lower Salt River since 1996 during summer holiday weekends.
“Our award-winning ‘Bag it for Bucks’ event encourages public lands stewardship simply by utilizing the our free litter bags while floating on the river. We applaud these efforts with our Star-Spangled Bucks as a Thank You for helping to conserve natural resources in Tonto National Forest which will guarantee quality and enjoyable recreational opportunities on the Lower Salt River,” Henri Breault, president/CEO of Salt River Tubing & Recreation Inc., said in the release.
