Join Broads for four days of restoration work on the Escalante.
Where: Calf Creek – Escalante River near Escalante, UT
Dates: May 5-11, 2013
Cost: $170 member/$195 non-member
The waters of the Escalante River carve stunning canyons, nurture wildlife, and sustain communities. One of the West’s last free-flowing rivers, the Escalante now faces the spread of invasive species – mainly Russian olive. You can help! Together we can save this river and its many benefits for current and future generations. Volunteer with Rose Chilcoat, other Broads, and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (GSENM) staff and botanists for a six-day adventure in the amazing GSENM; four days of hard work broken up by a day of play/exploring.
The level of activity is challenging to strenuous as you will be bending, kneeling, using hands tools and pulling tree branches. A younger crew will follow us to “finish” the job with chainsaws and herbicides.
We’ll camp at Calf Creek Campground. Cost includes camping, six breakfasts, and six dinners provided by camp cook Ronni Egan. Group size is limited to 12 so register now!
