Volunteers earn thanks

Dear Editor:Pitkin County Open Space and Trails would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out on a beautiful Saturday to help plant more than 3,000 willows, alders and cottonwoods along the Roaring Fork River at the North Star Nature Preserve.Your help and energy was phenomenal! The project will help stabilize the riverbanks and bring back native species along 800 feet of the river. We would also like to thank Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, Roaring Fork Conservancy, the Aspen Thrift Store, Patagonia, Ute Mountaineer, Main Street Bakery, The Big Wrap, Jour de Fete, and Clark’s Market for making the project such a huge success.Gary TennenbaumPitkin County Open Space and Trails
