Boulder Ranger District to Host 2014 Projects Open House

The Boulder Ranger District (BRD) of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland will host an open house to discuss information about local forest management projects that will begin in 2014. The meeting will take place at the Nederland Community Center on Monday, Jan. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. Representatives of the BRD will have maps and images projecting what the treatment areas will look like after cutting is complete and be available to answer questions.

The areas planned for cutting activities are in Boulder and Gilpin counties:

* near Nederland along Magnolia Road and Big Springs Subdivision

* near Gross Reservoir and Lazy Z Road

* near Rollinsville along Gilpin County Road 12 and Bobcat Trail

* near the Gold Hill Road and Switzerland Trail intersection

* near Pinecliff

Trees will also be planted at West Magnolia and Kelly Dahl Campground in follow-up to recent cutting activities in those areas.
