High Park Fire Restoration Coalition Needs Volunteers

After the High Park Fire burned 85,000 acres of land in northern Colorado, the High Park Restoration Coalition is proactively trying to keep the the fire damage from leading to any further issues as the winter approaches. The Coalition is made up of various local nonprofits whose focus is on ecological restoration.

“The most immediate post-fire need is to defend roads, reservoirs, rivers, homes and communities from the threat of further landslides and flooding expected in the coming winter and spring months,” according to John Giordanengo, one of the lead members of the Coalition.

Beginning in October, the Coalition plans to begin four restoration projects whose main goals are to protect water supplies and various infrastructures from floods and mudslides. With these restoration projects on the horizon, hundreds of volunteers are needed in order to carry out each project successfully.

The dates for the upcoming events are:

–          Friday, October 5, 2012

–          Saturday, October 6, 2012

–          Sunday, October 7, 2012 – Sponsored by New Belgium Brewing

–          Friday, October 19, 2012 – Sponsored by Cargill and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado

If anyone is interested in volunteering, they are asked to signup on the Wildlands Restoration Volunteer website at www.wlrv.org. In addition to volunteering, the Coalition is accepting donations for the restoration projects. The money will go towards the purchase of seed, mulch, tools, food and training for the crew and the leaders in restoration methods. Donations can be sent to the High Park Restoration Fund at the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, www.communityfoundationnc.org.
