Leave your mark in Aspen forever!

 

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers will assist the City of Aspen this Saturday, August 3 on a wetland planting project in Aspen’s Rio Grande Park to improve the wetlands area that helps filter storm water runoff before it enters the Roaring Fork River and provides important wildlife habitat. Volunteers will plant thousands of wetland plants, riparian trees and shrubs, and complete native seeding.  Parents are encouraged to bring their kids for this family-friendly project, where RFOV youth coordinator Jared McDaniel will oversee activities appropriate for kids ages 6 to 12. The project kicks off at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and concludes around 4 p.m. when hard work will be rewarded with dinner. Volunteers can sign up at rfov.org or call 927-8241.
