Mountain Studies Institute and Southwest Conservation Corps have received funding from the Colorado Water Conservation Board to assist landowners with control of invasive weed infestation as a result of impacts from the 416 Fire.
Assistance will include herbicide spraying of invasive weeds by a Southwest Conservation Corps crew. Preference will be given to low-income applicants. Work will be scheduled from July 22 to July 25. Follow-up re-seeding will take place in late fall, and the organizations will ask for participant volunteer assistance.
Those interested may contact Amanda Kuenzi at 387-5161 or email@example.com.
