Bookcliff Conservation Seed Plot
Come and check out the native seed plot located at Sween Acres, 3419 Grass Valley Road, Rifle, CO. District staff and volunteers recently removed unwanted vegetation and signs for each grass were installed last fall. The plot is a great tool for local landowners to see which native grasses are thriving in a non-irrigated site. The public can view these species of grass at anytime to help determine seed mixes for their own property. For more information contact the district office at 945-5494.
