The U.S Forest Service’s Boulder Ranger District together with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV) invite the public to give back to a place they love on National Public Lands Day, Saturday, Sept. 26th.
To celebrate the day, the Boulder Ranger District and WRV will be hosting a one-day volunteer event to complete building a critical section of trail between the Brainard Lake parking area and the Mitchell Lake Trailhead in Brainard Lake Recreation Area. The new family-friendly path takes visitors through alpine forests and wet meadows, across an 80-foot boardwalk, and past abundant views of picturesque 13,000 foot snow-capped peaks surrounding the lake filled basin.
Volunteers ages 14 and up are welcome to participate. The work day will last from approximately 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Volunteers and sponsors will be provided a picnic lunch, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m.
Registration is required. For details, contact Jamie Grasso, Trail Projects Coordinator at Wildlands Restoration Volunteers at 303-543-1411 x2# or firstname.lastname@example.org.
