Cottonwood Fencing at Lions Pond

Calling all volunteers! Lions Ponds at the CDOT Rest Area is a great location that many people enjoy recreating at for fishing, picnicking, and dog-walking. It is also the future site of a water-centric interpretive center. There are a number of growing cottonwoods that have been getting chewed by beavers in recent years. In order to increase wildlife habitat, the number of shady places for recreation, and the beauty of the area, we would like your help in protecting the cottonwood trees that are left!

All tools and workgloves are provided; we just need the workforce! Please bring a water bottle and wear attire appropriate for installing wire cages with pliers. A light supper will be provided as a thank you! Please direct any questions to nate@midcowatershed.org
