NOTICE: To address public safety concerns on Stagecoach Boulevard adjacent to the DOLA, Jefferson County Transportation and Engineering has discontinued parking along the road.
Due to recent storms, the Natural Resources (NR) team has install additional straw wattles to further reduce soil erosion in steep and degraded areas.
The sterile annual grass planted in May along the stream has germinated and is establishing well. This grass creates a vegetative buffer that stabilizes soil and filters pathogens such as E. coli.
The NR team is continuing to use game cameras to monitor how wildlife has responded since the closure. Both elk and deer have recently been observed on site.
The NR team continues to monitor stream water quality in collaboration with Evergreen Metro District staff.
Since the closure, 159 volunteers have invested 512 hours to assist with site clean-up, infrastructure removal, and other tasks.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued in the coming months to solicit bids from qualified firms to conduct comprehensive stream repair, revegetation, and soil stabilization activities.
