CANCELED: Cal-Wood Fire Recovery Seeding 10am - 3pm!

 03/30/2021  |  10:00 AM - 03:00 PM
  Heil Valley Ranch  |  Registration Required

Volunteer Work Projects - Adults (Ages 13 & Older)

The Cal-Wood Fire was the largest wildfire in Boulder County's history, burning about 10,000 acres - 5,000 of which were on Heil Valley Ranch. While our initial recovery efforts are primarily focused on large scale erosion control by way of aerial mulching, Boulder County Ecologists want to get some strategic seeding done before the mulch flies! As a team, we will be walking up and down slope spreading seed by hand. We will not be raking in the seed. This project is subject to weather conditions including high wind warnings. If conditions are predicted to be inclement, the project will be canceled and a notice will be sent to all registered participants 24 hours before the project (at the latest). What you should know before signing up: 1. We will be seeding on a steep slope, with uneven terrain, within the burn area. 2. Participants must be able to hike in this terrain, with a backpack, while holding a 5 gallon bucket filled with seed, for the entire duration of the project. (5 hrs.) 3. Hard hats, safety vests, and all other necessary tools will be provided. 4. A complete checklist of required and suggested items for you to bring will be provided to the registration group before project day. 5. All COVID Safety protocols will be observed for the duration of the project. This is a rare opportunity to get inside the burn area and give back to the lands that give us so much! I hope to see you on the project!
