Monarch Spur Trail volunteer work begins June 1!
Please join the Salida Trail Ecological Restoration Project (STERP) for the first volunteer work day of the summer on Wednesday, June 1, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. out on a section of the Monarch Spur Trail in downtown Salida.
Volunteers will learn about proper weed eradication techniques and then help pull weeds and pick up trash during the first volunteer event. STERP is a joint effort created to restore the trail to its natural habitat, where native plant and wildlife species can thrive alongside residents’ recreational use of the trail.
Interested volunteers are encouraged to contact Project Coordinator Buffy Lenth at [email protected] for more information about Wednesday’s work day.
STERP is a partnership among the Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas, Salida Parks, Open-space and Trails , Greater Arkansas River Nature Association, the City of Salida and Chaffee County.
