If you’ve already visited Steamboat Lake this summer (or Steamboat Springs for that matter) you’ve probably noticed something missing… some of our beautiful trees! For those that have taken interest in the recent Bark Beedle Epidemic hitting Colorado, here’s your chance to help.
This Saturday, June 26th, the ReTree Colorado initiative is setting out to plant 14,000 trees in Routt County in just one day! Speaking with park rangers at Steamboat Lake, close to 5,000 of those trees will be planted on and around Bridge Island alone.
Volunteers are needed! This is a tremendous opportunity to help with a fantastic project organized to re-tree our park and our area. You can meet at the Meadows Parking Lot in Steamboat Springs and hop on the free transportation provided to escort you to the planting sites. Or… if you’re already planning to be at Steamboat Lake, simply head over to Bridge Island and join the fun. Parking within the State Park will be free this day if you are volunteering your time for this cause. Best of all, food and music entertainment will be provided after the event back at the Meadows Parking Lot in Steamboat.
What to bring:
- Spade or Shovel
- Water Bottle (drink LOTS of water!)
