Jennifer Smith 

The Pocket Prairies at Dutch Creek Open Space

Spend a virtual evening with Dr. Steve Roels, a conservation biologist and restoration ecologist currently working as Senior Natural Resource Specialist for the City of Louisville, Colorado. His position involves plant and wildlife monitoring, weed management, habitat restoration, and environmental education. He earned his M.A. from the University of Kansas in 2011, studying population restoration of a rare prairie plant. He earned his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 2018, studying bird ecology in tropical forest restorations. 

Join Steve on an exploration of two native "Pocket Prairie" plantings in Louisville, Colorado (nestled between Boulder and Broomfield at 5,330' elevation). These plantings contain a mix of 23 native species intended to provide aesthetic beauty and pollinator resources throughout the year.  Come get inspiration for your yard and perhaps even spaces in your community!
