Every year our Conservation Committee organizes a two day event to help eliminate noxious weeds on OLT property. The weeds we target are on the Colorado Noxious Weeds list. Noxious weeds are "non-native invasive plants that displace desirable vegetation and degrade natural and agricultural lands." They threaten our drinking water supply, agricultural crops, pasture lands and native habitats. It's a fun group event that really helps us keep this special landscape healthy and beautiful. This year the dates are Tuesday, June 5th and Wednesday June 6th. If you'd like to participate, please contact our volunteer coordinator Rosie to sign up (email: or call: 719-256-4315). Soaking and Camping fees are complimentary. Look for an expanded article about noxious weeds and other Conservation Committee project opportunities in our May newsletter.
