Default CUSP needs volunteers with 4 wheel drive! Saturday 8/16/2014

Hello everyone,

For a couple years now restoration work in the Hayman burn area and within Trail Creek area has been underway. The Forest Service and partners re-routed foot trails and roads in the area to significantly decrease sedimentation into the water system.

Things are really coming together out in Trail Creek and we are seeing an increase in fish habitat and other wildlife. There are just a few things that need buttoning up. There were a few roads that were decommissioned and we are doing our last bit of raking and seeding on those roads, and also hauling slash (wooded material) over these sites - so that native vegetation can take hold and reduce any sediment that is still being transported into the water supply.

Our usual volunteers do not always have 4x4's and we love having the 4x4 community out. We are hoping that some of you may come out and volunteer with us to help finish some of these sites off of the new Forest Service Rd 366. We have posted this onto our volunteer website, but haven't had too many sign up because of the 4 wheel drive requirement.

Details:
Date: Saturday, August 16th
Meeting time: 9:30 am
Meeting location: Mt. Communities Fire Department (Corner of West Creek Rd. and Stump Rd.)
Workday: Finalizing decommissioned sites by raking and seeding and pulling wooded material over these areas.

Please come give us a hand. We would love to have you out!

If you would like to sign up and join us for our volunteer day, please go to:

www.uppersouthplatte.org/Volunteer/

1)Fill out a "new volunteer form" if you haven't volunteered with us before
2)Find the project in trail creek on Saturday, 08/16/2014 and fill out a booking

We hope to see some of you out there. Thank you for enjoying our public lands as much as we do!
