Event Details

Title: Come plant willows along First Creek in California Park!

Short Description: Come work with the US Forest Service to help restore First Creek by planting willows along its bank.

Difficulty: Easy (working along a steep embankment)

Project Details: California Park is an ecologically important area in Northwest Colorado. It serves as part of the Upper Yampa River Basin and provides miles of stream habitat for native fish populations. However, vegetation loss and erosion threaten some of California Park’s waterways. Currently, First Creek is undergoing a restoration process that will create a more climate-resistant ecosystem by reconnecting the stream to the floodplain. As part of this process, we will be planting approximately 300-500 willows along 5 miles of First Creek to provide bank stabilization and more resilient native fish habitat.
