The Student Conservation Council’s (SCC) two day restoration project, Students for Seedlings, at the Greenhorn Gulch trailhead was a spectacular success. With huge thanks to the U.S. Forest Service(USFS), students from local schools and community volunteers, we planted 1,500bitterbrush and sagebrush seedlings on 20 acres of which we hope 70-80% survive.Additionally, we raked and seeded approximately 5 acres with native grasses and forbes.
SCC member, Callie Weber commented, “Ever since the fire last year we have been looking for a way to help repair the damage. We’ve worked really hard and are really excited to help out our community.” Members of SCC learn about land conservation, restoration projects and non-profit governance.
Thank you to the many helping hands for assisting us. We look forward to spring to see the new growth take hold.
