The Gunnison Sage Grouse Habitat Restoration project is complete for the year. It was a very busy season working with the Gunnison BLM building rock structures. We got a lot of work done during our time on the project.
more than 3000 hours of work was completed during the project.
11 Zuni Bowls, 153 One Rock Dams, 15 Rock Run Downs, 50 Rock Mulches
4 Media lunas, 10 Rundown hybrids, 10 Rock Laybacks, and 1 Worm ditch
Were completed during the course of the project.
While these may look like "Just piles of rocks" they serve a very important purpose. These erosion control structures are helping re-establish Sage Grouse Habitat. Their purpose is to slow down water, prevent further erosion and resediment eroded out gullies and rasie the water table.
