Community Land Connection Series – Eagle Volunteer Restoration Project – Saturday, August 17, 2019 9am-12pm
As your local land conservation organization, the Eagle Valley Land Trust is dedicated to forever protecting land to provide critical wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, and scenic value for the Eagle County community. Because of our passion for people and wildlife, EVLT is motivated by the interests of the communities we serve. Last summer, we hosted a hugely successful restoration project on the Miller Ranch Open Space in Edwards. Thanks to a big turnout of passionate volunteers, the entire project took a fraction of the expected time to complete. Dedicated volunteers built wildlife-friendly fencing to protect sensitive habitat, concentrated trail use to sustainable areas, and created new connections with fellow community members.
The Miller Ranch Restoration was a pilot project to foster community and collective responsibility around Eagle County’s open spaces. In response to the great success of the event, EVLT is expanding our CLC Series events into Restoration Projects. On August 17th, Eagle Valley Land Trust is hosting a Restoration Project in the heart of Eagle to improve critical wildlife habitat and scenic viewsheds in partnership with Alpine Bank and the Town of Eagle. Join us in restoring a well-loved open space for this generation and those to come.
