POSTPONED: We stand with our community - locally and globally - to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus to help protect our most vulnerable community members. We are indefinitely postponing group projects and gatherings including this project until we have confirmation that it is safe to meet again.
Revegetation plays a crucial role in post-fire recovery. Vegetation helps hold burned soils in place, preventing channelization of flood flows and reduces the amount of sediment and debris that moves downstream in a flood event. Vegetation is key to long-term sustinability in post-fire conditions.
Join the Arkansas River Watershed Collaborative (ARWC) and the Greater Arkansas River Nature Association (GARNA) for a day of seeding in the Upper Bear Creek Drainage. ARWC is seeking volunteers to help spread a native seed mix and mulch on private property that was burned in the Decker Fire.
Thank you to GARNA for gathering volunteers, to Western Native Seed for seed and Chaffee County for mulch for the projects. Recovery is a community-wide process, and we are grateful for our partners.
If you are interested in volunteering or donating funds to cover additional native and cover crop seed please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
