Boulder County Parks & Open Space (BCPOS) wrapped up the Heil Valley Ranch aerial mulching project mid-August. BMA needed to wait for the helicopter operations to finish before we were allowed access. Our awesome volunteer crews started the work of cleaning drains, pulling plants out of the trail, raking/fixing heavy machinery tracks, and reseeding on August 17.

The good news is, Wapiti reopened as an out-and-back from the Ponderosa Loop and Picture Rock side on September 16! The disappointing news is that BCPOS extending the southside closure until Spring 2022.
