Parks and Wildlife officers have opened up Lake Pueblo State Park to visitors to gather free driftwood from the shoreline with the purchase of a pass to the park starting Wednesday. 

Visitors can pick up driftwood or dead fall from trees in the area from Nov. 15 to Dec. 15. CPW said no other wood, including limbs and branches on live or dead standing trees can be gathered.

Each permit has a map that shows where wood can be picked up. Anyone who purchases a day pass for $7 or has a $70 annual park pass can pick up the firewood at no additional charge.

“It is really important that folks make the extra effort to come into the Visitor Center and get a permit,” said Park Operations Manger Brian Kerrigan in a news release. “This gives the park staff an opportunity to direct the public to the exact locations where wood may be gathered."

Visitors stop by the visitors center at the park, which is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day during the week. Parks and Wildlife said permits for firewood are unlimited.
