Volunteers: You can help the recovery
As trees die from bark beetles in campgrounds and along trails and other recreation areas in our national forests, managers face a monumental task to keep those areas safe and accessible. Fortunately, the Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests have strong partnerships with many groups that organize volunteers who do significant labor. Volunteers are vital to Forest Service management.
During an average year 500 volunteers work 22,000 hours on the Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland.
These efforts are worth an estimated $500,000.
