STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Bureau of Land Management invites volunteers to help maintain and improve the Sarvis Creek Cabin area south of Steamboat Springs on Saturday, Sept. 29, as part of National Public Lands Day.
What: Sarvis Creek Cabin volunteer day
When: 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29
Where: Meet at the cabin, about 15 miles south of Steamboat
“The historic Sarvis Creek Cabin area is a gem in the Little Snake Field Office, and this volunteer effort will play a key role as we continue to renovate and enhance the area,” BLM Little Snake field manager Bruce Sillitoe was quoted as saying in a news release.
The BLM acquired the historic cabin in 2015 from Western Rivers Conservancy as part of a Land and Water Conservation Fund acquisition of a 45-acre parcel that provides key public access to the upper Yampa River below Stagecoach Reservoir. The cabin was built in 1956 by the Hubbard Family, who ranched in the valley for many years.
Volunteers will help with fence repair, bank clean-up, wood pile relocation and parking lot improvements. Participants should bring work gloves, boots, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt as well as be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Lunch will be provided.
Volunteers will meet at 8:30 a.m at the Sarvis Cabin, about 15 miles south of Steamboat Springs. Work should be completed by 3 p.m.
To get to the cabin, travel south on U.S. Highway 40 to the intersection of Colorado Highway 131. Turn right and go four miles to Routt County Road 18. Then turn left and travel 6.5 miles south to the worksite.
