Short Description of Activity

Met Sean Kelly and Kate Vassel, FS Range specialists. Hiked Jones Creek trail to Jones Creek key area and learned about key areas and a dot survey of bluegrass and carex. Then down to Hermosa Creek trail to Stoney key area, which was just rocks. No longer a key area, representative of the lower pasture. Hiked out to Lower Hermosa trailhead.


Good relationship building. Sean is very experienced and welcomes our input. He believes the permitees want to do the right thing. We expressed our interest in a healthy forest ecosystem. Both specialists are knowledgeable and interested in a viable, productive forest.
