Glenwood Springs, Colo. (November 1, 2013) – In late September, the Forest Service signed two decision notices for projects occurring in the Frying Pan Watershed. The projects are the Crooked Creek Stream Channel and Wetland Restoration Project and the Burnt Mountain Project.
The Crooked Creek Project aims to restore impacted streams and wetlands from historic reservoir construction and operations. The Burnt Mountain Project includes silviculture treatments to increase age class diversity and species distribution while capturing the economic value of dead and dying trees. The approved projects will help facilitate meeting the Forest Plan’s desired conditions and goals for that area.
For further information about the Crooked Creek Project contact Mark Weinhold and for the Burnt Mountain Project contact Acting Ranger David Francomb. They can be reached at The Sopris Ranger Station, 620 Main Street in Carbondale, Colorado or by calling 970-963-2266.
