Number of Volunteers Anticipated: up to 15

Gill Trail, adjacent to Cheesman Canyon, accesses world-class fishing with beautiful canyon views and. Erosion from the Hayman Fire, heavy use and social trails greatly contributes to sediment in the Upper South Platte River and downstream water supplies. This project will help reduce this sedimentation, greatly benefiting fish and wildlife habitat as well as the watershed supplying over 75% Colorado’s water for drinking and agricultural needs.
