About the Project Chautauqua Park is a National Historic Landmark and iconic to the City of Boulder. The area is host to some of the most beautiful scenery in Colorado with the famous Flatirons as its backdrop. The Bluebell Mesa rises above Chautauqua and is truly the definition of where the plains meet the mountains. The geologic history of this area can be seen not only in the Sandstone Flatirons that rest behind Bluebell Mesa, but also throughout Boulder as stone from this area was harvested in the late 1800’s to construct sidewalks and buildings from Boulder to Denver. The Fencing project will take place along the Bluebell Mesa Trail that overlooks Chautauqua. This project is important to help keep users on designated trails, preventing them from creating new use trails in the pristine Chautauqua meadow. There will be a ½ mile hike with a few hundred feet in elevation gain to get to the project site.
What will I be doing? Volunteers will be constructing pin and rail fencing which will involve digging holes for posts and assembling rails and wires to add stability. The use of hand tools and some light power tools will be required; plus a ½ mile hike with a few hundred feet in elevation gain to get to the project site. This is a challenging but rewarding project! Bring a water bottle, snacks, sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses since you will be working outside. Lunch will be provided.
