After de-compacting fire roads earlier this fall, the Land Trust worked with crews and volunteers to transplant grasses into the roads. These grasses will help stabilize the previously bare soil as we head into our wet winter season.

In addition, native seeds have been spread throughout the area. We will also continue to monitor and manage for invasive weeds in order to give our native plants a chance to thrive.

A big thank you to the volunteers who came out to help with this project! You are helping restore native plant communities!

Since the Grandview Fire was an unexpected event, we are looking for help with this restoration project. If you would like to contribute to our efforts to restore the portion of Rimrock Ranch impacted by the Grandview Fire, please make a gift today. Thank you for your support!
