This is a joint volunteer event with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers.

Plant cottonwood and peachleaf willow containers near previously constructed beaver dam analogs and maintain the fences that keep the cattle away from our new plants. Join us for one or both days, with the option to camp in the beautiful Campbell Valley!
 
Just 20 miles north of Fort Collins exists one of the most important mountains-to-plains ecological transition zones in the Front Range - The Laramie Foothills Conservation Area. However, in the early 1900's, Campbell Creek was used to transport irrigation water while the North Poudre Irrigation Canal was being completed. The elevation of the creek bottom was down cut by approximately 40 feet, causing the elevation of the valley's tributaries to drop commensurately.
 
This massive change in the watershed caused significant head-cutting and down-cutting of every tributary in the valley, resulting in a loss of an estimated 120 million cubic feet of soil. Now, erosion gullies range from 5 to 30 feet deep and run up to 1,000 feet across the land. Ever-increasing leakage from the canal continues to threaten the valley's stability.
