Free the Trees

Tamarisk Coalition
September 10th, 2016
Grand Junction, CO
Free the trees!  Help us improve wildlife habitat at Grand Junction Wildlife Area, located at Grand Junction's namesake - the confluence of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers.
Volunteers will be helping to remove weed barrier from cottonwood trees that were planted as part of a restoration project nearly two decades ago. The weed barrier fabric did not break down as expected and is currently keeping the trees from growing properly into mature cottonwoods. Volunteers will be using scissors and/or box cutters to remove the weed barrier. 
This event is being hosted as part of Xcel Energy's Day of Service, in collaboration with the US Bureau of Reclamation. The Day of Service is Saturday, Sept 10th. Volunteers will be working for a total of 3 hrs on the morning of September 10th. 
Event is FREE but registraiton is appreciated.  Registration opens July 5th.  Click here to register
