WILDERNESS WORKSHOP - HABITAT RESTORATION PROJECTS THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER
HABITAT RESTORATION PROJECTS
Wilderness Workshop’s Habitat Restoration Program conducts summer volunteer projects to restore ecosystems and spur community volunteerism on National Forest Lands. Several years ago we launched the Habitat Restoration Program as an engaging way for volunteers to roll up their sleeves, be part of our work, and give back to the wildlands and wildlife that are integral to our quality of life in the Roaring Fork Valley.

2017 projects:
  • Sat., Sept. 16Government Trail Barbed Wire Removal – For the second year in a row we’ll be removing abandoned, no longer necessary barbed wire from an elk calving area along the Government trail between the Buttermilk and Snowmass Ski Areas. Removing barb wire fencing from this location makes it much easier for animals to move through and reproduce. Since the area no long supports an active cattle allotment, the fencing there is no longer necessary and its continued presence reduces the value of the calving area and poses a hazard to recreationists.
