Dave Downes , Aspen Team coordinator, has taken very careful steps to observe the Forest Service's guidelines regarding the Covid-19 pandemic to minimize risks for volunteers. He's planned three initial outings for June 2020 as outlined in his emails below: 

We will begin with the removal of some old pasture fence along Elden Spring Road.  This project should allow the requisite social distancing with a few exceptions (e.g., removing the spool of wire from the winder, when the two doing this should be wearing masks).  After an outing or two there we will reconsider our next steps.  Early on we will avoid any projects that require ladders so no new aspen exclosure work.  Social distancing will be a firm requirement and we will ask each volunteer to remind others if he or she is concerned that another team member is getting too close.  Masks will be encouraged and required for certain actions.  We will not be using Forest Service vehicles so team members will be required to drive to the work site and this will be a consideration for our selection of sites.

Below is a list of the outings currently planned.
