ANTONITO – The state’s largest outdoor stewardship organization, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), is seeking volunteers aged 16 and up for a volunteer project on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 at the Trujillo Meadows Reservoir, located in the Rio Grande National Forest near Antonito.
The project will utilize up to 50 volunteers to remove barbed wire fencing from the popular campground and adjacent Rio de los Pinos inlet, which currently pose a safety risk to both recreationists and wildlife in the area. Tasks include cutting and rolling wire, removing wooden fence posts, and piling materials for later removal.
Participation in the project is free and volunteers may sign up for one or both days; camping is available at the worksite and VOC will provide meals for all volunteers. To register for the project, visit www.bitly.com/trujillomeadows or contact Jamie Burke at 303-715-1010 ext. 116.
The project is just one of many that VOC is hosting throughout the year to address stewardship needs throughout the state. To learn more about Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), visit www.voc.org or call 303-715-1010.
