Two projects slated to improve habitat on the Roan Plateau

SILT, Colo. -- Visitors to the Roan Plateau over the next few months will be seeing several habitat improvement projects being conducted by the Bureau of Land Management in the East Fork Parachute Creek drainage, including several planned prescribed fires and construction of a fish barrier. BLM is also working with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and Trout Unlimited to install a fish barrier in East Fork Parachute Creek as part of an effort to maintain native Colorado River cutthroat trout in this drainage.
