DWR Spread Seeds to Help Dollar Ridge Fire

Utah Division of Wildlife Resources have been keeping busy. Just this last month the DWR was involved in dropping tons of seed throughout areas that were affected by wildfire. One of those areas was the Dollar Ridge Fire site. According to Utah’s Watershed Restoration Initiative, the Dollar Ridge Fire Rehabilitation has a budget of $1,415,223.00 dollars and includes enough seed for 26,136 acres. Included in the budget is the cost of  ariel delivery, four weeks of youth crew to spray weeds, and for forest service to treat noxious weeds and to repair trail signage. Once the snow has melted away, these special seed mixes will help restore vegetation, benefiting wildlife and livestock that use our wild landscapes.
