Michigan Creek Willow Project with CUSP

Come join us to support CUSP(Coalition for the Upper South Platte) in this stream restoration project on Saturday, October 16th at Michigan Creek near Jefferson, CO.

This stretch of stream was originally straightened to accommodate the highway and has undergone considerable rehabilitation to return it to a more natural state.  We will be transplanting willows to help stabilize the stream banks.  This project will occur on private property; it is the intention of the property owner to ultimately create a trail and fishing area to be used for disabled access.

This will be a fun, challenging and rewarding project.  Additionally, the property owner has given permission allowing all participants to fish on this private property on this date only.  Participants may contact the owner personally for permission to fish there in the future.

Jim Klug is coordinating the project for CCTU. Please call Jim at (303.953.8046) if you plan to attend. Carpooling will be arranged as appropriate.  Volunteers will be meeting at the Jefferson Market in Jefferson, CO at 9:30am for a pre-project safety talk and demonstration.  See attachment for additional details and directions.
