Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities: Help Restore the High Park Fire Burn Area

High Park restoration

The High Park Restoration Coalition

In response to the devastating High Park Fire, a group of Northern Colorado nonprofits, agencies, individuals, and local businesses joined forces in July 2012 to form the High Park Restoration Coalition. We are combining resources to restore and stabilize high priority ecological areas affected by the High Park and Hewlett Gulch fires.

The goals of the High Park Restoration Coalition focus on the ecological restoration of public and private lands burned by these events. We will do this through public education and outreach as well as projects that stabilize soil to protect watersheds, reseed and reforest sensitive areas, restoring aquatic ecosystems, and rehabilitating trails and other recreation areas. By working in cooperation with local agencies, we can increase the positive impact that we can collectively have on the burned area and its recovery.

Please join us by becoming a volunteer with the Coalition and help restore our precious lands!
