Reynolds Ranch

Program Summary:

In 2019, Parks & Open Space implemented a 50 acre forestry treatment at Reynolds Ranch to maintain, restore and expand meadows and aspen habitat. Slash piles are created from these operations where leftover forest debris is stacked in large piles and then burned in the winter when snow is on the ground. Once these piles are burned, a “scar” is left, which is a disturbance that could potentially invite invasive plant species. With your help we will seed and mulch these scars to promote native vegetation.

Once registered, you will receive an email with more specific project information and an electronic waiver that needs to be submitted prior to the project.
