  • November 5: Wildlands Restoration Volunteers Plant Materials Collection
    In cooperation with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, we will gather in open space areas to gather seeds or berries from alder, birch, and chokecherry species determined to be high priority for habitat restoration. Work will include bending, kneeling, and/or stooping. No experience necessary! Sites will be in Larimer and Boulder Counties, with exact locations determined about a week before each project, due to the unpredictable nature of seed development.
    Have questions about the field day? Contact the Watershed Restoration Coordinator at lukas@wlrv.org or call 970-493-2075.
  • November 9: Wildlands Restoration Volunteers Middle North Fork of the Big Thompson Revegetation
    In cooperation with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, we will be planting native containerized plants on the Middle North Fork this fall on Forest Service land. The section of river is upstream from where we have been working this spring/summer and has been redesigned with tons of neat fish habitat enhancement features. You will definitely want to check it out!
    Our objective is to restore and enhance geomorphic and ecosystem function in the canyon, including the ongoing re-grading of stream banks and the stabilization of banks by installing erosion control products and planting native trees, grasses and shrubs whose roots naturally armor stream banks and provide habitat for fish and wildlife.
    Have questions about the field day? Contact the Watershed Restoration Coordinator at lukas@wlrv.org or call 970-493-2075. Go to this project at WLRV.

Note of the Day:

Many fly fishers like to adorn their fishing vests with all kinds of gadgets that are handy to reach. They are usually the ones who feel insecure without packing into vest pockets every fly they own. Others carry only the flies they need and hang gadgets on the inside of the vest so they don’t tangle their fly line. source unknown
