Rifle Creek Spring Planting Day — Middle #Colorado Watershed Council

Here’s the release from the MCWC:

We would love your help May 11th! 9am-4pm

The Middle Colorado Watershed Council is partnering with the Colorado Natural Heritage Program and NRCS to plant native vegetation along the banks of Rifle Creek. This is an effort that will improve water quality, benefit fish and wildlife, and restore ecosystem function. We have already planted over 800 willow and cottonwood cuttings! We will continue this effort by planting a wide variety of different native rooted plants that will hopefully get this stretch of Rifle Creek back towards what it should be.

This event includes lunch, snacks, and camaraderie! It will be 9am to 4pm, come for all or part of the day!

To sign up send an email to ReviveRifleCreek@gmail.com. Also, you can give an RSVP on Facebook.

The goal is for local community members, students, master gardeners’, natural resource buffs, local landowners, and anyone interested to involved and then be able follow the results of the these efforts for years to come. So come help us get 1,400 native plants in the ground on May 11th! Well… and there is always that free lunch!

Tell your friends, send them this flier!
