In July 2017, Colorado Parks and Wildlife – with support of TU and various other agency partners – released 960 year-old native Greenback Cutthroat Trout into Herman Gulch. This project is a major step in the recovery of Colorado’s state fish and will help stock another round of small native trout!
Project Description: Join TU members and CPW to hike bags of small Greenback trout into the headwaters of Herman Gulch. The hike is STRENUOUS and requires volunteers to bring their own backpack (with an internal or external frame).
Date/Time: September 11, 2017. Volunteers will meet at the Herman Gulch Trailhead at 10:00am and work until 3:00pm.
What to Bring: Backpack, water, layers (i.e. rain jacket, warm layer, etc.), sun protection, lunch.
Please note: this project is rated as STRENUOUS, and requires volunteers to hike up a steep series of switchbacks at close to 10,000 ft. in elevation.
