Why You Should Attend
There are significant biological conditions in Boulder Creek that can affect the recreation and
ecological quality of the overall Boulder Watershed and Community. The ecological structure
and condition of our valued trout fishery is mostly unknown by most Boulder residences who
recreate and fish in Boulder Creek. The valued Boulder Creek trout fishery is impacted by high
pollution loading such as sediment, heavy metals and lack of habitat. Aquatic Nuisance Species are invasive foreign invertebrates and plant species that have no natural population or growth control from local predators in our watershed. The presence of Aquatic Nuisance Species in the Boulder Watershed and in Colorado represents a significant risk in disrupting our aquatic ecosystems.
