Sprague Lake Restoration Project

Join the Rocky Mountain Conservancy and the Resource Stewardship Division to help restore Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park!

In 2017, structural repairs were made to Sprague Lake’s earthen dam in response to a severe wind event in 2011. The wind event uprooted large trees compromising the stability of the dam.  Repairs to the dam created a disturbed the area creating a need for active ecological restoration efforts. The project will work to seed native grass and forb species. These species will help stabilize the site and restores a native plant community.  To help promote native plant growth, the volunteers will transport and distribute topsoil and mulch.  Topsoil provides organic matter and microorganisms necessary for plant growth and development, while mulch promotes soil moisture retention.
