Boulder County Is Using Native Plant Species To Heal The Land

Throughout the year, Boulder County Parks and Open Space works with volunteers to collect, clean, and sow native seeds in an effort to restore and provide better stewardship to the county’s vast landscape. The county’s native seed program aims to ensure that naturally occurring ecosystems and their native populations continue to exist in Boulder County, while also helping open space areas heal from large-scale disturbances such as wildfires and floods. To learn more about the county’s native seed program, KGNU’s Stacie Johnson recently took part in a seed cleaning event while also turning to the county official who oversees those volunteer efforts and more.

Information about volunteer opportunities through Boulder County Parks & Open Space is available by visiting the Boulder County Parks & Open Space website or by clicking here.
