Description

*MAJOR UPDATE! We are moving the tree planting to SUNDAY - which is actually Earth Day! Due to the rainy, cold weather predicted for Saturday, this event is happening at the same time (9am-3pm) but on Sunday 22 April instead.*

Help us plant 7,000 trees in Fourmile Canyon in Boulder, Colorado.

Join us for an amazing day of planting trees and restoring an area that was affected by a major forest fire. Afterwards there will food & snacks provided, and then post-planting drinks at one of Boulder's great microbreweries - details to follow!

What to bring:
A shovel will be a big help
Gloves for those who have soft hands
A bag to hold all those trees you will be planting
Reusable water bottle
Wear appropriate closed-toe shoes - no flip flops
Bring a hat
Sunscreen

Background info:
The Fourmile Fire in 2010 burned 160 homes and left whole mountainsides scorched and without vegetation. Mountainous areas that experience wildfire are prone to flooding and landslides in the subsequent years, and that is exactly what has happened in Fourmile Canyon. Thousands of trees have been lost as a result of multiple disasters.

Planting trees and revegetating helps stabilize the soils on steep slopes, improves habitat, and contributes to improved water quality in the rivers. Join us from 9am-3pm for this community tree planting event that will help restore the natural beauty and function of the watershed.
