Venice Kelly

heil ranch open space-geer canyon
Boulder County, CO

heil ranch is at the base of the foothills….elevation is about 5,800 feet. there is still so much damage from the 2013 floods and restoration is still in progress. many of the butterflies that we usually see this time of year weren’t seen. however we did see a few.
this is one of the boulder county open space areas that we have been monitoring for about 15 years.
