This project is currently full. Keep checking back for more CTU volunteer opportunities!

Join personnel from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, United States Forest Service, and fellow TU members for the beginning of the Sand Creek Reclamation Project from August 26-30, 2019. This project has been 10 years in the making, and finally it is starting.

The initial phase this year involves application of the piscicide rotenone, and if you are willing to operate a rotenone drip station, please let Estevan know. Future phases will include stocking of RGCT into Sand Lakes and Sand Creek, to bolster populations of our local native fish.
