COL and Ducks Unlimited to enhance waterfowl habitat along Prewitt Reservoir!
The southern shore of Prewitt Reservoir is visited by thousands of waterfowl during annual migrations. Existing shallow areas are currently cut off by naturally-occurring dams, which discourage waterfowl from stopping. In partnership with DU, we will carefully excavate material, creating a natural back-flooding of shallow basins to provide quality habitat for birds and wetland wildlife. Other improvements will give water managers increased flexibility to meet users’ demands without negatively impacting local ranchers or wildlife. This project is made possible by funding through Great Outdoors Colorado and Playa Lakes Joint Venture and will be completed early this fall.
Join COL staff and friends on Saturday June 10 to remove noxious weeds from the East Lake Ranch in Edwards! The property is very scenic and is a great chance see an example of the conserved areas we work to protect. This is a perfect opportunity to get outdoors, make a difference and do some great work in a beautiful place! See link for info, including how to participate!
It’s no secret that Colorado residents and visitors love their outdoor experiences. Access for all ages and ability levels to open space contributes to our health, both physical, mental, and emotional.
