In the aftermath of the High Park and Hewlett Gulch Fires, increased runoff from denuded uplands dumped massive quantities of sediment into and simultaneously eroded their drainages.

One substantial tributary to the North Fork of the Poudre River was affected: destabilizing the creek bed and depositing tons of sediment in the Seaman Reservoir. In 2012, immediately after the fire, a small adventurous volunteer crew camped for a week and worked to stabilize the headwaters of this unnamed creek. Now we're looking for another small intrepid crew to return for a weekend and help stabilize its confluence with the North Fork.

Volunteers will be hiking in just over a mile along the reservoir to the mouth of the tributary camping and installing a series of in-stream timber and rock structures and planting woody vegetation to reinforce the exposed and unraveling stream corridor.

Volunteers needed to stage rocks and logs for use in constructing erosion control structures. Come escape the heat, and help protect Fort Collins' water supply!

We restored the burned uplands of this ephemeral Cache La Poudre tributary after the High Park Fire, but the increased flow from the denuded slopes and the heavy rain events in 2013 caused severe gullying in the unstable drainage below.
