The fires from last summer burned 87,000 acres of the Poudre River Watershed. We all know that thousands of trees burned in the fires, but the high intensity fires also burned all the leaves, needles, small plants, and soil on the forest floor. Without these critical elements, water can move much faster, building more energy along the way and taking more sediment with it. Anyone who has walked along the Poudre River since the fires will have seen the black ash that has already poured into the river. We are working to slow this down and help our watershed rebuild.

New nonprofit Run To Do Good of Boulder is hosting a series of five 5k runs in 2013. They are generously contributing all entry fees to support WRV's work restoring areas damaged by wildfire. This, the first fun-run in the series, is specifically to help fund the protection of the Poudre River from post-fire runoff pollution.

We'd love for you to join the fun and spread the word!

Runs begin at 6:30 pm, but please come early for the vendors and stay after for the post-race party hosted at 303 Vodka. There will be fun and giveaways for all ages!

The impacts of last summer's fires do not just impact the forest and the people living in the fire zone - they affect other aspects of our downstream communities-beer! Our local breweries also cannot use water with fire sediment in it. So the fires have negatively affected our ecosystems, our vital drinking water infrastructure, but also have the potential to affect our local economy as well.

5K Fun-Run to Protect 300,000 Coloradoans' Drinking Water!

Run To Do Good

TuesdayJul 23, 2013 - Number of Volunteers: 0

Last summer's high-severity fires have led to the slopes of our watershed becoming unstable and dramatically increasing the risk of erosion, flooding, and damage to our creeks, rivers, and roads, affecting thousands of Coloradoans. Sediment and debris rushing off the slopes of the burn zone end up in our creeks and rivers, which also supports the drinking water for ~300,000 Colorado residents. Our water treatment facilities can't remove all of the sediment. When sediment levels get too high in the river, our local utilities are forced to stop relying on the Poudre for our drinking water.

New nonprofit Run To Do Good of Boulder is hosting a series of five 5k runs in 2013. They are generously contributing all entry fees to support WRV's work restoring areas damaged by wildfire. This, the third fun-run in the series, is specifically to help protect municipal drinking water resources used by approximately 300,000 Coloradoans.

We'd love for you to join the fun and spread the word!

Last summer's High Park Fire burned the Rist Canyon area with high severity, including Whale Rock, Davis Ranch, and Stove Prairie near Fort Collins. This high-severity burn site poses a threat to water quality, homes, roads, and other infrastructure. We estimate this impacts over a dozen home-owners directly, and thousands of local residents indirectly (i.e., via threats to roads and landslides to downstream residents).

New nonprofit Run To Do Good of Boulder is hosting a series of five 5k runs in 2013. They are generously contributing all entry fees to support WRV's work restoring areas damaged by wildfire. The first fun-run is specifically to help fund a restoration project in the Whale Rock area.

Experience from past fires in Colorado tells us that the first three years after a large fire are critical for restoration. We need to act now or we will be seeing problems for years to come. Our goals for restoration in 2013 include restoring 150 acres of moderate to high severity burn areas across 10-15 properties in the burn zone. We need your help to get all the way to the finish line. Please lend your support to help restore some of the highest priority restoration sites within the High Park Fire area. The highest priority restoration work is estimated to take at least 3 years, and a great amount of community involvement.
