What we do
Here's just a sampling of what we’ve already done in 2019.
Everyone on our board is a dedicated, talented volunteer who works hard to ensure the money you invest in us and your participation in our projects makes a real difference in our rivers and wider environment.
It's still spring 2019 here in Colorado's high country, but we've already accomplished a lot in Grand County! Our first "on the ground and in the river" projects are already done! Here's what we've accomplished so far in 2019 thanks to our amazing volunteers:
On May 4 we harvested willows for our second year of planting along Ranch Creek near Devil's Thumb Ranch.
On May 7 we inventoried our results from our 2018 planting in the same area. We had a fabulous 73% survival rate.
On May 18 &19 we planted our recently harvested willows.
On May 7, we did a follow-up on our results from last year's planting. Our success rate was wonderful with an amazing 73% survival rate. The photo on the right was taken on May 19, 2019 and shows a healthy, sprouting willow only one year after planting.
