Volunteer Project | Trail Reconstruction at Signature Bluffs Natural Area
Saturday, Sept. 23
Signature Bluffs Nature Area is a river habitat for all sorts of wildlife and provides recreational opportunities from hiking, to kayaking and fishing to the Greeley community. However, heavy rains and heavy visitation has highlighted the need for volunteers to give back to this open space! Click here for more details and to register.
Volunteer Project | Russian Olive Removal
Saturday, Oct. 21 & Sunday, Oct. 22
Russian Olives are an invasive species that inhibits the growth of other tree and shrub species native to Colorado. They can reproduce by seed and root suckers, so we will be cutting the trees and then a city staff member will be applying herbicide to the stumps to inhibit the growth of root suckers. Sign up for one or both days. Click here for more details and to register.
