Family Volunteer Event

 
This will be a fun, family-friendly volunteer event! Ages 8+. 
 
Beavers provide important ecosystem services in our floodplains. They can be a big help creating and restoring wetlands. Sometimes though, we want to plant native trees to enhance and restore our urban floodplains. As these trees start to grow, we want to protect them from beavers so they can get eventually get big enough to provide a shaded creek corridor for fish or stabilize a bank with their roots.
 
Come help us apply special beaver protection paint to cottonwood trees. Remember to wear old clothes because the paint does not wash out. Please register through the Parks, Open Space, and Trails  JoinUs volunteer portal.
