The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Department has lifted a seasonal closure that protected imperiled bats. The lifting of this seasonal closure allows climbers to now access the following areas: the east face of the Hand, the standard route on the Finger Flatiron and all of Shark’s Fin.
No designated trails were closed as part of this wildlife closure, which protected a maternity colony of Townsend’s Big-eared bats, a species of special concern in Colorado.

The Board of Trustees (BOT) received some interesting affordable housing news on a couple of fronts at Monday nights’ meeting. But before we get to the possible “good news,” we have to report on some “bad news.” Lyons Substation Supervisor Sgt.
