Christmas tree cutting on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District has been a holiday tradition for nearly 40 years in the Red Feather Lakes area. Help this tradition continue by volunteering.
The Canyon Lakes Ranger District is looking for volunteers to work at the cutting site during a portion of the two weekends the area is open (Dec. 3-4 and Dec. 10-11). The site is located south of Red Feather Lakes.
Volunteers are needed to work at the entrance station and will work with Forest Service personnel greeting tree cutters, handing out area maps, and answering general questions.
Volunteers are also needed at Smokey Bear’s cabin working with Forest Service employees greeting the public, serving as bear ambassadors to children, taking photos, and handing out Smokey goodies.
If you are interested in volunteering, call 970-295-6700 and plan to attend an information meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 1, at the Forest Service Building located at 2150 Centre Ave., Building E.
