Volunteer Work Projects - Adult Programs

Parks & Open Space implements thinning projects that emulate pre-settlement forest structure by creating a clumpy, uneven-aged forest structure interspersed with openings that more closely resembles conditions that existed prior to interruption of the historic fire regime. Slash piles are created from these thinning operations where all the branches from cut trees are stacked in large piles and then burned in the winter when snow is on the ground. Once these piles are burned, a "scar" is left, which is a disturbance that could potentially invite invasive plant species. With your help we will seed and mulch these scars to promote native vegetation. **This project may not be used for court ordered community service. **Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult
