Congratulations to the Enriching Estes 'Youth Philanthropist of the Year;' the Estes Park High School Environmental Club! Students worked hard to organize and mobilize 300+ student volunteers to remove trash, invasive species and re-vegetate Fish Creek.
Have you taken a drive down the freshly paved Fish Creek Road or a stroll down the new walking paths lately? The next time you have a chance to do so, take a closer look at the creek's banks!
Thousands of plants and trees have been planted on the creek banks along with the sowing of grass seed. Much of this was done by Estes Park High School students and other volunteers. Fences have also been installed to protect the new plants and grasses from hungry elk. Volunteers continue to water the plants and seed grasses. At Cheley Camp our work at restoring Fish Creek is being used as a model by Colorado State University. Take a closer look at the few pictures to the right from the most recent events!
News & Updates
Restoring the lost natural habitat of Fish Creek was a critical focus along Fish Creek Road, especially for the local beaver population. The construction of this beaver dam is only one example of many where local volunteers, restoration experts, EVWC, and the local beaver came together to restore a portion of the Estes Valley.
