Clean Up Green Up
Thank you to all the volunteer individuals and teams who helped with our 2013 City of Longmont Clean Up Green Up event! It truly makes a difference in our City.
Weed Control Crew - Noxious weeds are one of the most serious threats to our public lands. They degrade the environment, reduce agricultural production, and interfere with outdoor recreation. Weed control volunteers will help control these invaders by digging, pulling, and clipping on public lands throughout the city, including some properties not open to the public. Meet new friends, explore new lands, and make a real difference. Volunteer for a day or all year long. We can use your help! All ages and experience welcome. For more information or to apply, please contact Jim Krick at 303-651-8451 or Jim.Krick@ci.longmont.co.us
