Free the Trees

Free the trees!  Help us improve wildlife habitat at Grand Junction Wildlife Area, located at Grand Junction's namesake - the confluence of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers.
Volunteers will be helping to remove weed barrier from cottonwood trees that were planted as part of a restoration project nearly two decades ago. The weed barrier fabric did not break down as expected and is currently keeping the trees from growing properly into mature cottonwoods. Volunteers will be using scissors and/or box cutters to remove the weed barrier.
