Thanks to volunteers of Friends of the Dillon Ranger District

A big thanks goes out to Friends of the Dillon Ranger District’s volunteers who joined in on the fun at our Forest Restoration Day on Sept. 10. These 25 volunteers and three Forest Service personnel generated 75 hours of volunteer stewardship for our national forest lands. They took down illegal structures at Sapphire Point, providing a safer and more natural experience for the users of this popular trail.Following the service project, Friends of the Dillon Ranger District hosted a Volunteer Celebration Picnic, celebrating the 126 volunteers that generated 500 hours of stewardship during FDRD’s 2005 summer season. The following volunteers were recognized as FDRD Volunteers of the Year – Maggie Cox (Super Friend), Kenny Van Howe (Super Service Project Volunteer), and Marilyn Fenner (Super Service Project Food Solicitor). A special thanks goes out to our sponsors: Backcountry Brewery, City Market, Safeway, Steaming Bean, Keystone Resort and Wilderness Sports. These businesses provided us with the great food spread and the prize giveaway. For more information on FDRD, please contact Guff Van Vooren at guffvanvooren@, or at (970) 389-6058.
