Grand Valley Snapshots: Week of Nov. 21, 2014

A team of members from the Grand Junction chapter of Great Old Broads for Wilderness put their rakes, trowels and BLM-borrowed tools to good work performing restoration on a long-closed road off Little Park Road. They were helped by staff and youth from Mesa County Partners. This is part of a four-day project around the Grand Valley, which also has the Broads teaming up with the skilled Hilltop Trail Crew youth group. The work involves loosening compacted soil, planting collected native seeds and transplanting plants and other natural items to visually disguise the old trail.
