Fourmile Watershed Coalition

Shift Details

Shift NameFourmile Watershed Coalition
Description
In April 2018 3000 Ponderosa seedlings were planted by volunteers in the Fourmile wildfire burn area. The Nature Conservancy tagged 300 of the trees with metal tags and GPS locations. Volunteers are needed to hike the area, use I-pads and GPS locations to locate the seedlings and record whether they are living or dead. If the seedlings are alive the height and circumference need to be measured and recorded in a spreadsheet.

Data collected will help many agencies across the Front Range better understand the mortality rates of Ponderosa seedlings in burn areas. This effort is part of a larger forest health initiative by the Fourmile Watershed Coalition including long-term planning for wildfires, fire mitigation, reforestation and education.

It is unlikely the project will get completed as there are 300 trees to be located, measured and recorded. The trees are over 20 acres so hiking is also involved. If volunteers complete the project there is weeding in riparian areas that can be completed.
