Volunteer Work Projects

Coyote Willow (Salix exigua) is an incredibly important restoration tool. Like nearly all members of this plant family - the Salicaceae, (includes cottonwoods, aspens, poplars and willows) Coyote Willows readily propagate from stem cuttings and quickly produce robust root systems that are excellent for holding the soil and stream banks in place. This characteristic is hugely beneficial for restoration! Boulder County needs to harvest around 800 Coyote Willow stems for some upcoming restoration, and we could use your help in this harvest! You will learn from Parks and Open Space Plant Ecologists what to look for, how to properly harvest willows, and how they will be used in restoration. This project will take place in the Longmont/Hygiene area, with exact meeting location and details distributed to the registration list about 3 days ahead of the project. Space is limited, so sign up today! Hope to see you there!
