Community Land Connection Series – Brush Creek Valley Ranch Restoration Project – Wednesday, August 5th

Brush Creek Valley Ranch is a beautiful and easily accessible open space. The ranch still has many miles of barbed wire fencing however, which can be harmful to local wildlife populations, including elk and deer. As a result, Eagle Valley Land Trust and Eagle County Open Space are working together on this project to help solve these issues. We will be focusing on fence removal and potentially fence building.

This restoration project is made possible by American Gypsum.

When: Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 9am-12pm

Where: Brush Creek Valley Ranch and Open Space

Bring: We will be encountering unpredictable weather and conditions in the field. Those interested should come prepared to spend three hours outside with sun protection, water, proper layers for Colorado weather, and sturdy waterproof shoes. Additionally, since we will be in contact with barbed wire fencing long sleeves and gloves are recommended (extra gloves will be provided by Eagle County). In accordance with the current public health order, we ask that you please bring a face covering and hand sanitizer.

Weather: This project is weather-dependent, please check EVLT’s Facebook page on the day of the hike for information if there is inclement weather.

Please email community@evlt.org for more information and to reserve your spot.  Although we love dogs, they can have an impact, especially for wildlife. Please leave your furry friends at home. Additionally, if you are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms, we ask that you please stay home.
