We are so excited to be working with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV) on several projects this summer. By combining our expertise in connecting youth to nature with WRV’s expertise in restoration ecology, we are creating high impact programs that get youth involved in caring for the natural places in their community and empower them to be the stewards of tomorrow.
On July 24, we will work with the student council from Poudre High School to rebuild the trail at Young Gulch and remove invasive plant species from this area, which was devastated by the High Park Fire in 2012 and flooding in 2013.
On August 3, WRV will come to the ELC to work with our E-CAMP middle school summer program. We will plant native willows and install erosion mitigation structures to help preserve a riverbank that has been severely eroded since the 2013 floods.
Accomplishing a huge task, like caring for our natural resources, requires innovative partnerships. When people and organizations come together to care for the places we love, the whole community benefits.
