Parks and Wildlife seeking help with trail construction
The Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, in cooperation with the Yampa Valley Fly Fishers chapter of Trout Unlimited, is building a new trail paralleling the river bank at the Chuck Lewis State Wildlife Area downstream of the Gilroy Bridge. The trail is intended to help lessen the impact on the stream bank and mitigate erosion issues on the east bank of the Yampa River. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot adjacent to the bridge on Gilroy Lane. Wear appropriate clothing, and bring your work gloves, sunscreen and a wheelbarrow if you have one. Lunch will be provided. Call Billy Atkinson at 970-846-9381 or Michael Turner at 970-846-4150.
