For folks living in the Skyview North HOA only. Come help plant native species in your neighborhood! The purpose of this project is to replant areas that were previously over-grown by Russian olive. Volunteers will work for roughly three hours to restore your neighborhood open space by planting native species. Please come prepared to work outside! We suggest wearing layers, a hat and sunscreen. Please bring a water bottle, snacks and anything else to make you comfortable throughout the day. No experience necessary, all safety and working materials will be provided. Kids welcome! There will be a station where children can learn about restoration and enjoy some hands-on activities while the adults and older kids are planting.
Registration is not required for this activity, but by clicking "sign up" you will receive a reminder and updates about this program.
Thank you Fort Collins and Larimer County voters! Your support of citizen-initiated sales taxes makes land conservation and educational activities like this possible.
I am a CSU student double majoring in Chemistry and Environmental Health with a Food Science/Safety minor. I love conservation and education; I've been volunteering with the Natural Areas department for about five years now. I started off as a wildflower seed packager and then co-adopted Pelican Marsh Natural Area for a year and Fossil Creek Reservoir Natural Area (currently) with my sister. I am so excited to now be a Master Naturalist Assistant!
