The public fishing pier on US 34 was lost in the 2013 floods that ravaged the Big Thompson Canyon. The Big Thompson Watershed Coalition and project partners are working to rebuild an ADA-compliant pier at the previous location.
So far, we have raised over $55,000 through a Colorado Parks and Wildlife “Fishing is Fun” grant and secured in-kind donations to cover some of the design and construction costs. However, we anticipate needing at least $20,000 more to cover permitting, surveying, and a portion of the construction costs. In addition, we would like to post educational signage and enhance the natural vegetation once the work is done, which will require additional funds.
Please consider making a donation to BTWC. We can designate your funds directly to our efforts to rebuild the pier – just write “rebuild the pier” on the memo line of your check.
