Boulder County Parks and Open Space looking for volunteers

Our friends at Boulder County Parks and Open Space have a new ongoing volunteer opportunity monitoring shrub habitats. Boulder County has abundant shrub habitats in varying conditions at their foothills properties (Hall Ranch, Heil Valley Ranch, Rabbit Mountain).

Monitors will track shrub health relative to climate, browsing, and fire interval on Boulder County open space properties. Some general qualifications include knowledge of plant identification or natural resources background, experience with line and point transect monitoring, scientific method and the ability to keep computer records.

For more information about this opportunity, visit this page (scroll to the bottom of the document), or contact Michael Bauer at, 303-678-6219.

The Colorado Natural Heritage Program recently did an extensive county-wide inventory of Boulder County. Our report, Survey of Critical Biological Resources in Boulder County, Colorado, is availabe on our reports page, under "2009 Documents and Reports".
