Classes Collaborate with GOL! for Environmental Clean Up
Working with Get Outdoors Leadville! in our schools, Colin McFee’s Woods & Fly Fishing students and Nicci Condon’s Environmental Science students joined Mike Conlin of the Lake County Open Space Initiative for some stewardship work – trash pick-up and native plant planting – on a beautiful, sunny fall day at Hayden Meadows. While we didn’t find much trash out there (a good thing!), we still cleaned up what was there and managed to get some plants in the ground before the snow flies! Thanks to Greater Arkansas River Nature Association and Alpine Eco: Wetland Consulting and Plant Nursery in Buena Vista for the plant connection and the plants!
