Paradise Reclaimed

The Forest Service is actively managing many of the remaining Tall Forb sites in efforts to maintain those sites that are in optimal condition and where possible restore the degraded sites to their former glory. Grazing in many of these areas has been significantly curtailed. Other sites have been fenced or re-seeded. Several have been designated as Wildflower Viewing Areas for people to enjoy and experience a glimpse of what once was a veritable “bee garden” in the sky.
