Forests: Wildfire Recovery Call List
Friday Jan 01, 2021 - Number of Volunteers: 500
The largest wildfires in Colorado's history have impacted our lands and water during 2020. WRV is working diligently with multiple partners to plan post-fire restoration projects in order to give our community ways to take direct action in the recovery effort. Please add your name to our call list and we will let you know as soon as we are able to mobilize for this important work.
Building upon WRV's past experience responding to disasters such as the Fourmile Fire in 2010, the High Park Fire in 2012 and the Front Range floods in 2013, we hope to offer a series of one-day events and trainings that will bring our community together to heal the land.
NOTE: There is no event on January 1, nor have any dates been set yet. You can add your name to our call list and you will be the first to know when we are able to move forward with post-fire projects and trainings.
Trails: Pawnee Buttes
● Family Friendly ● Minimum Age: 16 with adult (more info
Saturday Jan 16, 2021 - Number of Volunteers: 10
Help wrap up the trail work at the landmark Pawnee Buttes before raptor nesting season begins. We'll be installing the last of the wooden steps and rigging a high-line to move the remaining resurfacing material to the least accessible trail sections.
The Pawnee Buttes trail is the only trail of any significance on the ~200K Acre Pawnee National Grasslands. The flooding of 2013 did considerable damage in this highly erodible landscape but with all of the grazing and Natural Resource extraction to oversee the understaffed district hasn't been able to address it yet. Spend a day on the plains under the big sky with sweeping views of this unique area!
