Volunteer Work - Hall Ranch

Today I spent the morning at a volunteer work project coordinated through the Parks and Open Space department of Boulder County. We were participating in a forestry project that is focused on ponderosa pine restoration at Hall Ranch.

Before we got there, the forest thinning operations generated a large amount of slash (limbs from trees). This buildup of material needs to be managed to minimize the risk of fire potential. Our job today was to organize the slash into piles that could be easily and safely burned during the winter.

Below is a map showing where we were and some pictures I took throughout the morning. We had a good crew of people and our group leaders (Shane and Craig) were great too. This was my first time volunteering through this program and I had a good time and will most likely be looking for other projects to join throughout the year.

Enjoy!
