BACKGROUND: Spend Earth Day outside giving back to your public lands. Jefferson County Open Space is hosting a volunteer project at the Welchester Tree Grant Park as a way to protect wildlife and continue to provide healthy and safe nature based experiences to our visitors. Volunteers will be focusing on 3 main objectives. • Helping to control noxious weeds, which helps keep natural habitats resilient amidst a changing climate. • Managing trail closure and maintenance, which helps protect already stressed native plants and minimizes habitat fragmentation. • Enhancing pollinator species and planting native shrubs, increasing resiliency to changing climate conditions across all lands. REQUIREMENTS: Be able to hike and use a variety of tools, including shovels, picks, and rakes. Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Be prepared for numerous and changing environmental conditions. WHAT TO BRING & WEAR: Project waiver: All volunteers need to sign a waiver. If you register online, then you will sign it electronically. Paper copies will also be available at the work site. Closed-toe, sturdy shoes are required (no sandals). Work gloves (if you have them).
