Canyon Day is the semi-annual event where members of the Reed Community join together for a day of work to help protect and restore the canyon.
Spring Canyon Day 2017
Join the Reed community in planting native trees and shrubs, removing and rebuilding sections of damaged trail. The event is free and open to anyone. Tools, training, food and fun will be provided. The event will be held on Saturday, April 8, 9 a.m.–3 p.m. Meet your friends below the bouncy pedestrian bridge near Aspen dorm.
Dress for the weather and bring gloves if you have them.
Canyon Day history
Early Canyon Days involved raking leaves, burning debris, and attempting to make the canyon into a park. More recently, the focus of Canyon Day has been on protecting and restoring the natural vegetation to make the canyon a better habitat for urban wildlife. You can read more about how the event has changed over the years on our Canyon Day history page.
