The latest happenings at the Rocky Mountain Tree Festival
Volunteer Event #1 Recap – March 31, 2018 @ Fred Thomas Park
Our first volunteer tree planting event was a success! . . .
The best part of the event was seeing complete strangers coming together and working hard, all with smiles on their faces and not afraid to get their hands dirty!
One event down, three to go!
Rocky Mountain Tree Festival 2017: Lyons, Colorado Restoration
In 2017, the Vivax CommunityFoundation had its sights set on Lyons, Colorado. After meeting with Wildland Restoration Volunteers and partnering with the CAN’D Aid Foundation, the Vivax Community Improvement Foundation had its beginnings for the second annual Rocky Mountain Tree Festival. In September 2013, a massive flood damaged Left Hand Creek Watershed, degrading the channel and adjacent overbank areas, and scouring away most of the riparian vegetation. This area became the focus of 2017’s restoration efforts . . .
