Project Description:

Eagle River Watershed Council and Town of Vail are seeking volunteers to help restore riparian habitat by planting native trees and shrubs on public property along Gore Creek.

Gore Creek has been listed as a 303(d) impaired waterway for low aquatic life since 2012. Gore Creek’s impairment is due in part to a loss of riparian, or streamside, vegetation along its banks.

Riparian vegetation is necessary to stabilize streambanks, shade waterways, supply nutrients that are essential to aquatic life, and to filter pollutants in surface and groundwater.

 

How to volunteer:

Please register using the link below. Volunteers should be at least 10 years of age. You will be asked to complete a waiver at time of registration. Details (where to meet, what to bring, etc.) will be sent to the email address you provide.
