Hello volunteers,

Autumn is creeping into the air, and Wildlands Restoration Volunteers has just
one restoration project remaining before the end of the season. Join us on Saturday,
October 14th for our Pelican Pond Wetland Restoration at St. Vrain State Park
in east Longmont. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy cooler days while
contributing to native wetland habitat re-establishment.

Families are welcome: children ages 10 and up can participate along with their
parents.

PROJECT OVERVIEW
The 600 acre St. Vrain State Park is an ideal location for a variety of outdoor
enthusiasts, including fishermen, campers, birders, photographers, hikers, bikers,
and boaters. The park offers an oasis of habitat within a rapidly developing
region. The parks master plan calls for extensive habitat restoration and expansion
of recreational opportunities over the coming decade. WRV volunteers will help
to transform the area of a former road into a scenic, natural area alongside
a newly developed hiking trail. Volunteers will plant native shrubs and trees
and restore wetland habitat along the shores of Pelican Pond.
There is much work to be done at St. Vrain Park to transform it into the gem
of habitat and recreation envisioned in the master plan. WRV is continuing work
with St. Vrain State Park to help form a “Friends of St. Vrain State Park” group
devoted to this long term vision. Number of volunteers: 80. Minimum age: 10
with an adult.
