Rosewood Nature Study Area

The vision of the Rosewood Nature Study Area is to establish and steward a publicly accessible Great Basin wetland habitat where the community can come to learn about and appreciate the importance of our natural open spaces and local parks.

​Project Goals

  1. Develop a sustainable plan to restore and conserve sensitive wetland and upland habitat for native plants, wildlife, and natural resource management. 

  2. Rehabilitate existing trails and develop additional non-motorized trails to establish the wetland as a node in the larger network of area parks and open spaces. 

  3. Offer a state of the art, environmentally conscious nature center with hands-on, interactive exhibits for both children and adults to provide park-based programs, interpretive signage, and outdoor classroom spaces for families, community groups, and schools.

  4. Inspire community members to take a proactive volunteer role in the preservation and improvement of our parks and open spaces in order to strengthen the bond between the community and their open spaces.

Restoration Progress Status

As of May 2021, nearly two operational years of restoration have been completed.  In this time, we have improved 68 acres through invasive removal and native revegetation, 13,000 linear feet of streambank have been improved, 2.5 miles of trail has been enhanced, both bridges have been repaired, and over 1,500 native plants have been established. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and check back here for updates as we continue the restoration process.
