CTU Youth Camp
A vote was taken and all were in favor of sponsoring Maddie Renfroe for this year’s camp.
Need to let Dan Omasta at CTU know that we will sponsor Maddie’s tuition.
We are still looking for one more student to sponsor this year.
We pledged 100 hours and $3,000 for the Gunnison River Project several years ago. They may not need the funding now but we plan to do the 100 hours of volunteer time this spring.
On April 20th there will be a Bio-engineering workshop and Willow cutting on the Gunnison.
Jesse will follow up on how many people we want.
Bill – Greenbacks, a Front Range chapter, want to come to Gunnison for a project. We could invite them to a planting in May
We are still working on the plans but expect to have some willow planting in May.
Can’d Aid has 15 people in July for a project. (possibly the 21st) Will donate $2000 if we put them to work. Let’s put them to work!
Embrace a Stream – Must call Regional rep by the 15 of April to be in the running. Jesse has a proposal for the Bieble Ditch diversion structure ready to go. Bieble Ditch is on Tomichi Creek and is a good target for restoration.
Invisible Fence – Ask Mike to mail the conservation district a check.
We have been invoiced for the Gunnison River project.
Will send the invoice to Bill Goddard for review
No interest in the present group to go to the CTU Rendezvous.
