We had a good time planting Engleman Spruce, Limber Pine, and Bristlecone Pine trees at the old London Mine tailings reclamation project last weekend. With a large crew from Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK) and volunteers from the Colorado Department of Reclamation, Mining & Safety (DRMS), everyone planted nearly a thousand trees on Saturday! These trees will help to provide erosion control and wildlife habitat on the site, which was once a mine waste pile. Thanks to Erica Crosby at the DRMS for organizing the event; we hope to take part in more fun environmental projects like this in the future, so stay tuned!
30 of you went underground with us, into the Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, and we all had a great time. And afterwards, enjoyed some delicious pizza and beverages at Beau Jos. And we raised nearly a thousand dollars for the scholarship fund! Thanks for coming out and supporting us, and we hope to see you next time!
