Selkirk Habitat Restoration Work Days North Tarryall Creek near Como Just completed
Volunteers worked with Forest Service staff over four days in August to protect the North Tarryall Creek in Selkirk basin. The South Park Ranger District has identified a growing problem with illegal dispersed camping and illegal motorized travel that is invading the headwaters of the North Tarryall Creek adjacent to the Selkirk Campground causing increased sedimentation, significant erosion and damaging impacts to the flora and fauna of this area.
Work included installation of post and cable fencing along the main road near Selkirk Campground, scarifying, seeding and placing bush and logs on some illegal OHV tracks, and prepartion of two seasonal gates to protect wintering and calving areas surrounding the campground and wetlands area.
Many thanks to all the volunteers and partners Park County Land and Water Trust Fund, South Park National Heritage Area, Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Coalition for Upper South Platte and the South Park Ranger District.
