About

Join us at beautiful Peschel Open Space, east of Longmont, to help restore the effects of the flood of September of 2013, which devastated communities all along the Colorado Front Range. The flood scoured away all stream side vegetation and trees, making these areas more prone to erosion and invasion by weeds, and poor habitat for fish and wildlife.

We'll gather on this fall day to plant native seed along portions of the creek, after all soil grading has been finished. This project is one phase a large multi-year effort to restore St Vrain Creek.

Special thanks to Terra Foundation, Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists, Audubon, and the Colorado Water Conservation Board for funding this project.
