iVolunteer Day Denver Project
In the Spring of 2010, Bluff Lake Nature Center will focus on planting hundreds of large native trees along the Sand Creek corridor that winds through the Nature Center. Most of the planting will be accomplished by teams of community volunteers. The projects will include removing non-native trees and vegetation and planting, staking and mulching native trees. Experienced Bluff Lake staff members and crew leaders will work with small groups of 7-8 volunteers.
To prepare, we ask that volunteers bring the following:
· Closed-toe shoes (preferably boots or hiking shoes)
· Work gloves
· Insect repellent
· At least one quart of water
About Bluff Lake Nature Center
Bluff Lake Nature Center is a unique urban wildlife refuge and outdoor classroom in east Denver, adjacent to the Stapleton neighborhood. Bluff Lake's 123 acres are home to an abundance of animals and native plants, and include a variety of habitats, including short-grass prairie, wetlands and a riparian corridor. Bluff Lake's award-winning programs focus on science education for schoolchildren throughout the metropolitan area. The majority of schoolchildren who participate in Bluff Lake programs come from schools with a high percentage of families who receive free and reduced lunches. Public programming focuses on the natural history of the site and features Jr. Naturalist day camps, fireside chats and naturalist-led bird walks. As a nonprofit organization, Bluff Lake Nature Center relies upon a strong core of community volunteers and donors for support.
