This past Saturday, Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV) teamed up with the GLC for a fun morning of trail work in Eldorado Canyon. GLC high school students and WRV’s youth crew leaders worked on a plot of land that was affected by the 2013 flood. We planed seed in a field, and learned that there are actually many steps that are needed to ensure that the seeds will successfully grow! We spread seeds that will grow a variety of native grasses and plants to create ecological diversity in the space. The last step comprised of spreading wood hay over all of the different materials we spread to make sure things were not blown away, and because it will decompose and act as mulch for the seedlings!
We look forward to the next time we can collaborate with WRV! Learn more about the GLC and find out about our upcoming trips here.
