Adopt-a-Trail at Gateway Natural AreaDave Piske, Conservation Chair
Gateway Natural Area at the confluence of the North Fork of the Poudre with the main flow of the Poudre River, being close to Fort Collins, is a favorite fishing site of many Rocky Mountain Flycasters (RMF) members. It also is the graduation site for RMF’s River Conservation & Fly Fishing Youth Day Camp.
Gateway is one of City of Fort Collins Natural Areas, a collection of special places in and near Fort Collins that provide public access to over 32,000 acres of natural areas. Recently the Fort Collins Natural Areas management staff invited the RMF Board of Directors to consider participating in any of several candidate activities supporting the management of Natural Areas. Your Board decided that Gateway is the Fort Collins Natural Area most relevant to RMF members’ interests. More specifically, RMF has entered into an Adopt-a-Trail agreement with Fort Collins in which RMF volunteers participates in foot-trail maintenance within the Gateway Natural Area. This activity is similar to the trail maintenance work that RMF volunteers have conducted during the past 6 years at Larimer County’s Eagles Nest Open Space. So, Gateway is an addition to what RMF volunteers are already doing to protect and maintain trails in our nearby public lands natural areas.
A work schedule for 2014 has not yet been set but you can see more details from previous work on the Gateway page. We are looking for a Gateway Volunteer Coordinator for this year. The time commitment is not extensive but the rewards are enormous. See our Volunteer page for additional details.
Volunteers Needed for Rocky Mountain National Park
Lily Lake Greenback Patrol
Volunteers help the Park Law Enforcement Ranger inform the Public of the “Catch and Release” and barbless hook regulations at Lily Lake and help enforce the spawning area closure during spawning season. Volunteers wear the National Park Volunteer uniform and work on a chosen day of the week, either morning, afternoon or evening patrol from May through August.
You set your schedule and there is flexibility if you need to skip a week.
Contact Austin Condon at AWCFlash@AOL.com if you are interested in helping at Lily Lake.
