CLC Restoration Series: Public Hands on Public Lands

Spring’s arrival marks the beginning of another recreation season across the Rocky Mountains. Colorado’s public lands often bear the brunt of the recreational cycle, notably more so after the pandemic pushed more and more people outside. The story was no different here in Eagle County, and now our public lands need our help!

This Earth Week 2021, EVLT is teaming up with our local Bureau of Land Management partners for a restoration project at the Dotsero Landing Recreation Site before the up and coming boating season. Activities include brush removal, bench and fence restoration, trash clean up and parking area maintenance. We’re calling on you to come out, and help restore our public lands!

When: Saturday, April 24th 8:30am – 12:00pm

Where: Dotsero Landing Recreation Site

Bring: We will be encountering unpredictable weather and conditions in the field. Those interested should come prepared to spend 3-4 hours outside with sun protection, water, proper layers for Colorado weather, working clothes and sturdy hiking/work boots. In accordance with the current public health order and to protect participants and our community, we ask that you please bring a face covering. Although we love dogs, they can have an impact, especially for wildlife. Please leave your furry friends at home.

Any and all ages are welcome – we’ll take all the help we can get!

As far as equipment, the BLM will be providing all necessary tools for the project. However, if you have a set (or two) of work gloves, please bring them. Drinks and snacks will be provided by EVLT.

Weather: This event is weather-dependent, please check EVLT’s Facebook page on the day of the event for information if there is inclement weather.
