Description

About the Stewardship Site:
Barr Lake State Park is located a short drive away from Denver in Brighton, Colorado. The park is a great spot for families, naturalists and fishermen, with an abundance of recreation opportunities from birding to boating.

About the Volunteer Experience:
Volunteers ages 8 and up will help restore the Fox Meadow Trail along the lake shore. Tasks will include laying down new crusher fines, painting an observation deck and removing invasive species. With this variety of work, there will be something for all ages and skill levels to do! Breakfast and lunch will be provided by VOC.

About the Overall Impact:
The Fox Meadows Trail has been degraded by heavy use and erosion. With only two full-time staff, Barr Lake State Park needs volunteers to help complete this critical work.

NOTE: MINORS ON VOC PROJECTS
Youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on single-day projects.
