Event Details

Volunteer with Yampa Valley Climate Crew and the US Forest Service to help our environment by planting trees at the site of the Muddy Slide Fire.

In 2021, the Muddy Slide Fire burned over 4,000 acres during a three month period. Larger and more intense fires resulting from a changing climate are affecting our forests’ ability to regenerate naturally. It’s crucial that, in the absence of this regeneration, we help restore our forests through reforestation efforts. Climate Crew volunteers will join the US Forest Service to replant five acres of burned area at the Muddy Slide Fire site over three days. Reforestation after a wildfire is the first step in creating more resilient forests that will continue to sequester carbon and provide healthy watersheds.

The group will meet at the US Forest Service office in Steamboat 8 a.m., then carpool to the work site.

Contact Dakota Dolan at dakota@yvsc.org or call/text (908) 334-5293 with any questions.

Please be prepared to walk in uneven terrain, use tools, and carry tree sacks.
