Skin Gulch Flood Restoration

SCHEDULED
Intermediate    ●    Full Day    ●    Miniumum Age: 16 (more info)

SaturdayMay 02, 2015 - Number of Volunteers: 70

7:30am-5pm approx

The High Park Fire ravaged over 85,000 acres of Northern Colorado lands, leaving hundreds of residents displaced and over 41,000 acres of land burned at a moderate to high severity! As a result, the Cache La Poudre River ran black after heavy rains last summer, and landslides and flooding closed roads and threatened homes last fall. WRV and the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed (CPRW) have spent months coordinating with agency partners, community organizations and hundreds of affected individuals to lay the ground for short- and long-term restoration actions.

Volunteer work day in Cache la Poudre Canyon! WRV will partner with the US Forest Service and the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed. Comprehensive work will consist of regrading stream bank, willow planting, seeding and mulching approximately 3 acres of floodplain at a crucial junction of Skin Gulch where it enters the Cache la Poudre (Stove Prairie Rd. and Highway 14).

Whether you live downstream of the fire or in the actual burn area, please lend a hand and help restore some of the highest priority restoration sites within the High Park Fire area! This high priority restoration work is estimated to take several more years, and a great amount of community involvement. And it will not be possible without your support!

In the aftermath of the High Park and Hewlett Gulch Fires, increased runoff from denuded slopes cut down many creeks and drainages in the burn areas.

One tributary to the Seaman reservoir was affected, destabilizing the creek bed and depositing tons of sediment in the reservoir. In 2012 we worked to stabilize the headwaters of this unnamed creek, and now we're returning to help stabilize the lower reaches.

Volunteers will be hiking in just over a mile along the reservoir and then installing large in-stream rock structures to reinforce head cuts that continue to unravel in the absence of vegetation.
