Event Details

Join us to reforest Elkhead Creek by planting native cottonwoods and willows along the bank!

Lower Elkhead Creek is a nine-mile stretch of creek below Elkhead Reservoir that has experienced significant bank erosion, channel incision, and riparian habitat degradation. Many landowners on Lower Elkhead Creek have been participating in a collaborative effort to restore the Elkhead Creek ecosystem, and Phase 1 of the restoration project currently includes a five-mile stretch of the creek directly below Elkhead Reservoir. Yampa Valley Climate Crew is teaming with private landowners and Trout Unlimted to plant native cottonwoods and willows that will help stabilize the banks and revitalize the riparian area. 

We hope that you can join us for a day of tree planting, which will have a positive impact for years to come. A BBQ will also be held for our volunteers as a thank-you for their hard work!
