I would like to invite any of you who may be interested to join Dennis Will of Colorado Springs Forestry, the Mile High Youth Corps, and the City of Manitou Springs as we discuss an upcoming project in Red Rock Canyon Open Space that will help to reduce the risk of wildfire and improve the ecological health of the property. The grant-funded project includes roughly 4 acres of RRC near the Section 16 trailhead (along Gold Camp RD) and another 73 acres in the northwest portion of the Open Space (adjacent to the Crystal Hills neighborhood). We are excited to discuss the science of the project, project specifications and timeline of the work with you. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and we encourage you to invite any of your friends and neighbors who may be interested in attending.
Date: Thursday November 7th
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Venue 515
515 Manitou Avenue
Manitou Springs, CO 80829
We appreciate your interest in this project and we look forward to meeting with you on Nov. 7th
We just got word that the City is allowing volunteers in to Palmer Park for a flood restoration work day TOMORROW, Saturday, Sept 21st.
Please RSVP for this event if you would like to help.
Here are the details:
When: Sat, September 21, 8:00am – 11:30am
Where: Palmer Park, Maizeland and Academy (map)
Volunteer Work Day to help Palmer Park:
Saturday Morning: We will meet at 8:00 am in the parking lot by Maizeland and Academy, near the baseball fields. If you arrive late that is no problem we can still get you set up with equipment and a crew. We work until 11:30 but if you need to leave early, we understand. Everyone should bring water and work gloves. Other items are optional depending on what sort of work you're doing. People might want to bring snacks and tools (a favorite shovel or pick for trail work), a trash pick up device for litter or pooper scooper. We will have all these materials available, only a smile is required.
Well-supervised children are welcome.
Dogs are welcome but will need to stay leashed (except in our off leash areas).
