Denver Chapter 2015

Denver Chapter 2015

 

Get involved with ALCC’s 2016 Day of Service projects. This is one time we come together to give back within our communities – and everyone leaves at the end of the day knowing they got more back than they gave. Learn more about this year’s projects below and contact us to participate.

The Denver Chapter will work alongside students in the Career Pathway Program at Green Mountain High School, Lakewood. The project involves renovating beds at the main entrance and creating outdoor learning lab garden. We will be removing/replacing rock mulch, relocating some plants and planting other new ones. For the first time, we’re not working for a school, but with its students!

Among items needed: small equipment such as Dingos and trailers to haul debris to nearby recycle sites.

To volunteer, contact Becky Garber: bgarber@alcc.com.

The Northern Chapter is partnering with Walt Clark Middle School in Loveland to install a pollinator garden. This project came about as a result of the students learning about the importance of butterflies and horticulture. The school has been able to secure some of the materials and has had volunteers complete some of the work. ALCC volunteers will help complete the project with the exception of planting the perennials and grasses, which will be done by the students.

The scope of work includes:

  • Build 2 raised planters
  • Install drip irrigation system
  • Install trees and shrubs
  • Install fence around perimeter
  • Install gravel and breeze

The Southern Chapter is partnering with Sierra High School in Colorado Springs to install a landscape lab for their Career Readiness Academy Construction Class. The goal of this project is to foster awareness that leads to employment in the landscape industry. The school will use the site to augment curriculum so students can engage in hands-on learning opportunities which include plant identification, grading and drainage, and paver installation. The neighboring grade and middle schools will also be able to use the site for various labs.

The scope of work includes:

  • Install trees, shrubs and grasses
  • Install granite rock
  • Install dry cobble stream bed
  • Install breeze pathway and area surrounding work stations
  • Install raised earth berm
  • Install drip irrigation system
  • Install timber border and sand boxes for work stations
