First graders from Rockrimmon Elementary School form a "bucket brigade" of mulch while volunteering Thursday, May 29, 2014 at the Flying W Ranch. 60 first graders from the school spread the mulch as part of post-fire watershed rehabilitation in an area burned during the Waldo Canyon Fire. Flying W Ranch Foundation executive director Aarom WInter said volunteers usually have to be 15 years old but he made an exception for the first graders. "Many of these kids were evacuated during the Waldo Canyon Fire so we wanted them to be here," he said. Photo by Mark Reis, The Gazette
