This is a joint volunteer event with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers.

Enjoy panoramic views of the Front Range and heal a local area deeply impacted by the 2013 flood. In the aftermath of the flood, millions of tamarisk seedlings germinated, which pose a major threat to the watershed should they mature. Volunteers will continue our tremendous progress from the past few years, removing tamarisk through hand pulling and weed wrenching.

Our project is located on St. Vrain Creek, just east of the Boulder/Weld County line, where the September 2013 flood breached several lakes and carved a new channel. Tamarisk (aka Salt Cedar) has devastated watersheds throughout the west, costing billions of dollars in lost habitat, lost water, and lost electricity.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact Geoffrey (geoffrey@wlrv.org).

Read our blog post about a workday for this project last year.
