Here’s the announcement from the Colorado Environmental Coalition:

Date: Saturday, February 25, 2012
Time: 10:00am – 3:00pm
Where: Meet at the Gateway Community Center, 42700 Highway 141

This project is taking place on February 25th, 26th, 27th, and 28th. Volunteers are still needed for weekday sessions (Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th). Please RSVP (see below) to secure your space!

Join Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and Bureau of Land Management on any or all of the upcoming restoration days and take advantage of the opportunity to:

– Learn how to identify, cut, transport, and plant willows.
– Spend a fun winter day(s) with other volunteers.
– Enjoy the beautiful scenery and delightful surroundings of the Dolores River from red rocks to riverside plant communities, and who knows maybe even a bald eagle! Click here for more information about area resources!
– Enjoy a complimentary lunch provided by Gateway Canyons Resort.

Please dress appropriately in winter work clothes (dress in layers, wear insulated boots and gloves, and a hat) as this is a dirty, muddy job! Children ages 12 and over, accompanied by a parent, are welcome!

Space is limited so please RSVP to Fran Parker at or 970-244-3031.
