Event Details

Title: Come Plant Trees Along Trout Creek!

Short Description: Join us to plant trees and restore riparian areas along Trout Creek with Trout Unlimited

Difficulty: Easy (working along a streambank)

Project Details: Trout Creek flows from Sheriff Reservoir in the Flattops down to the Yampa River at Milner. Along the way some of its stretches have experienced significant bank erosion, channel incision and riparian habitat degradation. The consequences of these losses are numerous, including decreased wildlife habitat, less bank stability, and increased water temperatures. Working with private landowners, Trout Unlimited is teaming up with the Yampa Valley Climate Crew volunteers to restore Trout Creek on an upper section near Oak Creek. We will plant native cottonwoods and willows that will help stabilize the banks, decrease water temperatures, and revitalize the riparian area.
