NW Colorado Work Project - Colorado Public Lands Day

thumbnail.jpg

Help celebrate this Colorado Public Lands Day, May 18th by getting your boots on the ground to support CPW with a fence removal project in Dinosaur National Monument and on BLM lands. This is going to be remote and awesome. The project is going to run for 4 days from May 20th to May 23rd. Volunteers can show up for a day or the entire project.

Volunteers will be meeting Brian Holmes (CPW project lead) at Deerlodge Campground where folks are encouraged to set up camp. If you're traveling in for this project please plan on being at the campsite and ready to work by 8am. From there the National Park Service will be ferrying volunteers across the Yampa River to the work site. The fence removal work will be in a very remote area where few people go but with lots of wildlife, particularly in the fall and winter.

Brian Holmes could use volunteers any of those days, and if enough folks want to volunteer we can do a group wild game meal for dinner one evening. The Deerlodge Campground has water and a pit toilet, but nothing else. 

What to Bring:

  • Sturdy work gloves and boots
  • Fence pliers
  • Sensible work clothes 
  • A day pack with rain gear, plenty of water, snacks, additional clothing layers, etc
  • Camping Gear including shelter, sleeping gear, cooking equipment, food, extra water, toiletries, etc. (everything you need to be comfortable for the time you are there)

It will be high water, but we believe we will be OK on getting folks back and forth across the river as needed. That's all we have for logistics right now. Nearest gas and other services are in Rangely for folks coming from the Grand Junction area. There is nothing near the work site.
