EVENT DESCRIPTION

The 3nd Annual Arbor Day 5K is a philanthropic race organized by Alpha Gamma Omega. The route will be run through City Park. All profits for the 2017 race will be donated to the Restoring Colorado's Forests Fund. This fund is managed by CSU's Warner College of Natural Resources and the Colorado State Forest Service. Its primary purpose is to provide tree seedlings for planting on Colorado lands impacted by wildfire.

The Restoring Colorado's Forests Fund is run by CSU's Warner College of Natural Resources and the Colorado State Forest Service.

From the Colorado State Forest Service:
"In the aftermath of destructive wildfires, reforestation of burned land helps:

  • protect water supplies
  • restores wildlife habitat
  • reduces flooding and erosion​

Donations to the Restoring Colorado's Forests Fund will provide tree seedlings for planting on privately owned and state managed lands throughout Colorado that have been most severely impacted by wildfire or other disasters. Areas that are most critical to water protection and wildlife habitat, and that provide the most public benefit, will be targeted for planting efforts.​"

Please arrive at least 30 minutes early to pick up your t-shirt and participant bag. All participants must bring a photo I.D.
