Restore the Gore  Check in for news about the challenges facing Gore Creek and what is being done to Restore the Gore!

Here’s a juvenile male boreal toad about to be released after being measured. Biologists wear gloves to protect the toads from oils on human skin, sunscreen and pathogens. #borealtoad #amphibian #endangeredspecies #vail #lovevail #keepitwild #keepitclean #restorethegore #vaillive #nature #rivers #creeks

That’s a cluster of endangered Boreal Toad tadpoles! Did you know they breed in the East Vail beaver ponds? Please keep dogs away from the ponds during breeding season (June) to protect this sensitive species. #restorethegore #keepitwild #keepitclean #vaillive #vail #endangeredspecies #nature #toads #ponds #lovevail #colorado
