Review for Trees, Water & People, Fort Collins, CO, USA
My name is Cam Reader and I work for the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery, located in Fort Collins, Colorado. I had the incredible opportunity through the Forest Service to not only grow the Douglas Firs needed for the restoration project, but travel with two of my coworkers to the restoration site on the Santo Domingo/Kewa Reservation in New Mexico to plant the seedlings. We got to camp in a beautiful campground, meet many members of the tribe and work alongside them for two days on a beautiful reservation. We were invited back to have dinner both nights in a member's Pueblo with all of their family. There were countless amounts of unforgettable memories made, and history learned throughout the weekend. Including watching the women make their homemade bread with an adobe oven! I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this project with Trees, Water and People and to have made such unforgettable connections with the wonderful people of the Santo Domingo Tribe; it showed me what it's like to be a part of something so much bigger than myself. I will never forget the experience and am looking forward to working with Trees, Water and People as much as I can and hopefully very soon.
