The Boulder County Commissioners and Parks & Open Space staff will present their annual Conservation Awards on Sept. 27.
Several parks and trails will be closed for construction and other management activities. Closures are scheduled for the Anne U. White Trail, Coalton Trailhead, Carolyn Holmberg Preserve, Heil Valley Ranch, Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain, and Walden Ponds Wildlife Habitat.
A free shuttle operates Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to carry passengers from Nederland to the Hessie Trailhead, a popular entry point for accessing Lost Lake and the Indian Peaks Wilderness area off of Fourth of July Road. The service ends Sunday, Oct. 8.
Parks & Open Space will not be conducting any aerial herbicide applications until the weed management policy has been updated and a decision on whether to resume applications has been made. Staff is working on updating the policy, and tours are scheduled for the public to learn about weed management.
