Volunteer for the City of Longmont’s beaver tree painting from 9 am to noon on Wednesday, August 7. This fun, family-friendly event is for ages eight and older.

Help us apply special beaver protection paint to establishing native trees in a local nature area. Wear old clothes because the paint doesn’t wash out. Space is limited, so please register at bit.ly/2YUMD72.
