Protect native trees by volunteering at beaver tree painting events

Post Date:05/29/2019 12:00 PM

Volunteer on Saturday, June 15 and Wednesday, Aug. 7 for the City of Longmont’s beaver tree painting events! These will be fun, family-friendly events for those ages eight and up.

Beavers provide important ecosystem services in our floodplains. They can be a big help creating and restoring wetlands. Sometimes though, we want to plant native trees to enhance and restore our urban riparian areas but protect them from beavers so they can grow to provide a shaded creek for fish or stabilize a bank with their roots. Come help us apply special beaver protection paint to establish native trees in a City nature area. Remember to wear old clothes because the paint does not wash out.

Space is limited, so please register for the June 15th event or register for the August 7th event using our new Parks, Open Space and Trails volunteer website at
