Waldo Canyon restoration continues this weekend on Saturday with an effort from Volunteers For Outdoor Colorado. KRCC’s Tucker Hampson reports.
The project looks to help protect nearby water supplies, infrastructure, and Highway 24, by working on a number of erosion control issues, including dead tree removal, sandbagging, and reseeding grass and trees.
Volunteer for Outdoor Colorado spokeswoman Jessica Von Duerring says it’s part of an ongoing effort to help restore the burn scar.
The Rocky Mountain Field Institute held its last trail maintenance event of the year in mid-November at Garden of the Gods. Around 75 volunteers from all parts of the Colorado Springs community showed up to help. KRCC’s Eliza Densmore was there and has this audio postcard.
