This Earth Day, help plant 7,000 trees in Fourmile Canyon

Join One Tree Planted for an amazing day of planting trees and restoring an area that was affected by a major forest fire. Afterward, there will food and snacks provided, and then post-planting drinks at one of Boulder's great microbreweries—details to follow!

What to bring

  • Shovel will be a big help 
  • Gloves, hat and closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops)
  • Bag to hold all the trees you will be planting
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Sunscreen

Planting trees and revegetating helps stabilize the soils on steep slopes, improves habitat and contributes to improved water quality in the rivers. Join us for this community tree planting event that will help restore the natural beauty and function of the watershed.

Background info

The Fourmile Fire in 2010 burned 160 homes and left whole mountainsides scorched and without vegetation. Mountainous areas that experience wildfire are prone to flooding and landslides in the subsequent years, and that is exactly what has happened in Fourmile Canyon. Thousands of trees have been lost as a result of multiple disasters. 

Saturday, April 21, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fourmile Canyon, 849 Melvina Hill Rd., Boulder
