Help Boulder County Repair Trails at Heil Valley Ranch – October 9

SAVE THE DATE!   October 9, 2021

Boulder County Parks and Open Space has been making some progress cleaning up Heil Valley Ranch after the Calwood Fire.  They had hoped to be able to re-open the south of the Park this fall, but unfortunately will not be able to meet that goal until spring of 2022.  However, volunteers can help accelerate the project.

Help BATCO get it done!

What: The work will entail removal of vegetation overgrowth, moving slash/trees along the trail corridor to keep the trail from widening, and redefining sections of trail that have seen sediment deposition from storms.

The work will be moderately strenuous and will include the use of hand tools such as McLeods, pick mattocks, rakes, and shovels.  (However, you can do as much hard work or as little as you like!)

When: Saturday, October 9
            Meeting time: 8:00am        Project End time: 12:00 pm

Where:  We will provide more detailed location information as we approach the date

RSVP: Chris Morrison

Weather: Weather in Colorado is unpredictable at any time of year.  It is important that you bring warm and waterproof clothing that you can work in, as we will try to complete the work even in slightly inclement weather (cold temps, light rain/snow).  

What You Should Bring
Water bottle and water
Sturdy shoes/boots – no sandals please
Pants – recommended
Work gloves (if you have a special pair) otherwise we will provide them
Layers of clothes
Rain gear
Backpack – for carrying clothing, food, etc.
Binoculars or camera (optional)

We Will Provide:
Work gloves
Extra Water
First aid kit
All necessary tools

Thanks in advance for volunteering with BATCO and Boulder County Parks & Open Space!
