Bar NI Ranch Community Fund Grant AwardedTo Support Youth Education and River Enhancement

The Purgatoire Watershed Partnership, Trout Unlimited local chapter, The Youth Club of Trinidad, and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies partnered together on this newly funded project by the Bar NI Ranch Community Fund to encourage youth to get outside and engage with the outdoors, while also participating in environmental education and accomplishing enhancement of the Purgatoire River. Local youth will participate in activities in and along the Purgatoire River guided by local experts in fishery development, birds of the riparian corridor, and native and invasive riparian vegetation/habitat and plant identification. Participants will learn about their local river ecosystem and help enhance their river – all while getting wet and dirty and slimy in the name of being outdoors! Activities will include fish stocking, learning how to fish, helping to develop basic bird and plant skills and ID booklets for the Trinidad River Walk, and conducting invasive plant management/native habitat restoration.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife will also be a key partner in these efforts.
