About

Enjoy panoramic views of the Front Range and heal a local area devastated by the 2013 flood!

The flood from Sept 2013 on the St Vrain Creek breached several lakes and carved a new channel just east of the Boulder/Weld County line during the flood. 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. Continuing our work from 2016, volunteers will help restore this wetland area by planting and reducing erosion before our invasive removal-specific project on October 28th (we'd love to see you there too!).
