City of Durango offers free firewood | Environment
The City of Durango, in cooperation with local fire experts, has continued with a fuels reduction program at Dalla Mountain Park. There are several piles of dry lumber from the overgrown underbrush that was cleared this past year, which can now be gathered for firewood. Durango Parks and Recreation Department is making this firewood available at no cost to city residents.
The entrance gate to Dalla Mountain Park is located at 3234 Junction Street in Durango and it will be open on Oct. 20, 2011 from 8:3 a.m. until 4p.m. All vehicles entering the Mountain Park must remain on the established roadway. It may be necessary to cut the longer sections of firewood for ease of hauling to the vehicle for transportation off site.
A city parks employee will be present at all times when the Dalla Mountain Park gate is open to the public to provide additional information and assistance with locating the firewood piles. For additional information, call the Durango Parks and Recreation Department at 970-375-7300.
