In Denver, our Clarkson Serves event has now been rescheduled for the SECOND time! We are still planning to work with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and help protect the water supply in the area burned by the High Park Fire by seeding, mulching and stabilizing slopes.

The work day is now scheduled for Saturday, May 11th from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. A light breakfast and lunch, along with water filling stations will be provided. Please bring a reusable water bottle and your own food if you have a specific dietary restriction. Make sure to wear very comfortable shoes/clothing suitable for working and hiking. More information on what to bring and directions to the meeting spot will be sent directly by our VOC project manager closer to our event date.

In June last year, the High Park fire burned over 87,000 acres and destroyed over 250 homes in the mountains west of Fort Collins. The fire's devastation has severely impacted the surrounding water, plant, and wildlife resources. Due to the fire, the soil in the project area remains loose and unable to efficiently soak up water. Run-offs loaded with sediments deposited into the water have affected major water systems in the area and mudslides caused additional post fire damage. Be part of this important effort to help minimize the damage to Colorado's precious water supply. This is a unique opportunity to be involved first-hand in efforts to help restore an area severely affected by wildfire in Colorado. We will be working in the Whale Rock area near Fort Collins. Volunteers will work to re-seed, mulch and stabilize the soil on slopes in some badly burned areas.

To join our group please sign up below - each pre-registered volunteer is guaranteed a t-shirt! If you have questions, please email Denver Alumni Chapter president Luke Netto '09 at nettolt@clarksonalumni.com.

Volunteers will enjoy the experience and come away feeling fulfilled. We hope you'll join fellow alumni in April and help us support the needs of our communities!
