Get Involved with Earth Day Activities: Join The Willow Conservation Project

With Earth Day less than a month away, there are plenty of Earth Day activities popping up that you can get involved with throughout the Denver Metro area. The Willow Conservation Project has been an Earth Day staple in Castle Rock for over a decade. It’s an incredible way for you to get involved and help keep Castle Rock beautiful. You can join the project fun on Saturday, April 16. 

Spruce up Castle Rock 

Each year, members from The POST Partners Volunteer Program harvest willows from the side of Plum Creek and replant them to help keep our trail system looking great. In the past, the willows were replanted along Sellers Gulch and the drainage areas of Philip S. Miller Park. This year’s willows will be planted at three different crossings along The East Plum Creek Trail. Planting the willows along this stretch of the trail will help revitalize the area after recent construction between South Perry and Crystal Valley Parkway.
