About 50 Air Force football players are slated to help with restoration of the Waldo Canyon Fire burn scar area on Tuesday.

The area, which was charred in the 2012 wildfire, is highly vunerable to flooding after its major loss of vegetation. The players will help install log erosion barriers on hill slopes and/or reseed newly constructed sediment retention basins.

The football players will help from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
