Valles Caldera Holiday Tree Thinning Project Ends

Los Amigos de Valles Caldera News:

Los Amigos de Valles Caldera (Los Amigos) regretfully announces that Christmas trees will NOT be available at the Valles Caldera this holiday season.

Over the last five years, LADVC volunteers helped thin forests on the Valles Caldera National Preserve to help reduce fuel for forest fires. This activity, conducted in November, provided freshly cut trees for the holidays.

We would like to thank all of the people who drove to the Valles Caldera to choose their Christmas trees. Their donations raised move than $26,000 to support the work of Los Amigos on the preserve.

The Los Amigos Board of Directors extends a very special thank you to members Jim and Dale Counce and Jack and Darlene Crane for the major roles they played in making this project a success.
