What to Expect

RFOV is excited to partner with the Roaring Fork Conservancy, Town of Basalt, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife to contribute to the environmental restoration and erosion control efforts following last year’s Lake Christine Fire. Volunteers will hand seed brushy hillsides that could not be reached via aerial or machine seeding techniques. Additionally, volunteers will create structures to reduce erosion, flooding, and debris flow on the burn scar and surrounding communities.
