PUBLIC INVITED TO CLEANUP DAY AT ST. VRAIN NOV. 16
CPW press release
FIRESTONE, Colo. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting the public to a cleanup day at St. Vrain State Park on Saturday, Nov. 16.
Since the flood closed the Park on Sept. 12, many concerned and interested park visitors have asked for an opportunity to come help get St. Vrain back into shape.
St. Vrain State Park is a special place for local residents and the many out-of-state campers who visit year round, said Kathy Seiple, park manager. We are very appreciative of the outpouring of interest and concern for the Park. This cleanup day will give us a chance to get together and make a dent in some of the work needed to get us up and running by next spring.
St. Vrain is hoping to recruit 75-100 volunteers to help with a variety of projects. Projects included in the cleanup day are clearing debris throughout the most severely hit areas of the park, rebuilding 40 + campsite pads and cleaning debris from picnic table sites. Park staff will also be recruiting volunteers to assist with future flood damage recovery projects.
