[POSTPONED] Flora of the Boulder Mountain Park, conservation and management


The Mountain Park is viewed by many as the crown jewel of the Boulder's OSMP system, and serves as a model for public land management across other open spaces in urban areas nationwide. Join Tim Hogan, Collection Manager at the CU Museum's Herbarium as he discusses how the forested foothills, with their prominent relief and associated diversity of habitats, serve as one of the last low-elevation nature refuges along the Colorado Front Range. With the increasing urbanization of the region and the loss of biological diversity worldwide, the wisdom of the Boulder community in protecting this landscape is becoming ever more apparent. This report presents a thoroughly revised checklist of the flora of the Boulder Mountain Parks since the area was last inventoried in 1993.
