Bluff Stabilization Project

Many Thanks to Everyone who came out for the FIRST Bluff Stabilization Party! Without volunteers like these taking an interest in helping to improve the Colorado Lagoon, things would never get done!

The clouds were looking rather ominous but held back so we could get our work done. It was a perfect day to be working outdoors with everyone getting their hands dirty.

We got started first thing in the afternoon with about 50 different Native Plants that needed to be put into the ground. We had over a dozen Amazing folks show up to help out. Everyone dug in deep and got the job done!

Here are some shots from the day...

I think this guy loves his plants!

Taylor teaching Geoff about how certain plants will grow and how they will help to stabilize the bluff

Sue making sure these new plants have enough to drink

The most delicate moment.....

It was truly a great day and an example of when people come together for a higher purpose outside themselves great things can happen. Be SURE to check back for future Planting parties and Bluff clearing projects. We usually work for a few hours and have a FUN time doing it!

Thank You for your Help and Support!

The Crew.
