Central Colorado Conservancy Seek Conservation Stewards
The Central Colorado Conservancy has several opportunities for citizens to get involved as conservation stewards, the Conservancy’s active team of volunteers working on projects that support our agricultural and public lands, ultimately improving the health of our land and water resources.

Monday June 5th, Yale Lakes Wet Meadow Restoration
Yale Lakes, near Buena Vista, was a small reservoir until the State Division of Water Resources identified issues with the local augmentation plan. The agency ordered the dam to be breached and the reservoir drained and filled. Central Colorado Conservancy is collaborating with local ecologist Mark Beardsley and Colorado Parks and Wildlife to transform the area into its original wetland condition. Join us in planting sedges, transplanting willows and seeding. Help create a native wet meadow that will provide great habitat for numerous local species.
Time: 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Bring: A sense of fun, gloves, snacks/water, sunscreen and a hat, a hand trowel or spade if you have one.
