Start the New Year off by giving back to the environment! In partnership with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies Eastern-Screech Owl Citizen Science program volunteers will work to restore a section of Udall Natural Area by planting native shrubs and trees. The Eastern-Screech Owl Citizen Science program works to provide science based support to help identify restoration areas that will benefit owls, birds and other wildlife - thanks to Patagonia and New Belgium for their kind support of Citizen Science and restoration along the Poudre River. ~With their support we will be planting about 100 shrubs -due to the time of year, some holes will be pre-dug. ~Please come prepared to work outside - layers are your friend! Also wear close toed shoes, long pants and anything else you may need to keep you comfortable. Natural Areas will provide all necessary tools and safety equipment including…(gloves, tools, waders, sunscreen, water, snacks and lunch). ~Please carpool, bike or walk to reduce congestion - Udall is located right off the Poudre Trail (additional parking information will be available upon sign up). ~Lunch is provided, if you have any food allergies or restrictions, please email Diane Wendt beforehand at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can best prepare! ~Natural areas are dynamic and so are we; the project may change for safety, weather, or site conditions. All registered participants will be notified via email at least 2 hours before project start time. Please check your email for updates before you go. In case of bad weather the 'rain-date' will be Friday, February 23rd from 11-2.Minimum Participants: 5
