Glen Eyrie erosion work – volunteers needed

       Erosion-control projects on the Glen Eyrie property are scheduled on Saturdays, Nov. 17, Dec. 1, 8 and 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
       Volunteers are welcome. Tools and hard hats will be provided.
       Work will include placing log erosion barriers (LEBs) and flexible straw tubes called wattles, according to Dave Dombach, Glen Eyrie fire & flood mitigation resource coordinator.
       “So far we've placed 14 wattles and about 40 LEBs,” he said in an e-mail. “Only 460 more logs to go!”
       The work is in response to hillside vegetation that was destroyed near Glen Eyrie in the Waldo Canyon Fire last summer.
       For more information, call Dombach at 306-4698.

       A protest against the media's alleged Benghazi cover-up will be held outside the KRDO station, 399 S. Eighth St., Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 to 11 a.m.
