Abstract

An ecological survey of the mammals, birds, herptiles, and plants at Browns Park, Colorado, was conducted for the Colorado Division of wildlife. At least 38 species of mammals, 80 species of birds, 8 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 176 species of plants occur at Browns Park. Browns Park, once known as Browns Hole, is located in the northwestern corner of Moffat County, Colorado, and the eastern part of adjacent Daggett County, Utah. Browns Park is a valley about 64 km long and 9.5 km at its widest point, bordered by Cold Spring Mountain to the north and the Uinta Mountains to the south and west. It is an area where few biological investigations have been conducted. Accordingly, the objective of the study was a survey of the mammals, birds, herptiles, and plants of the Browns Park region.
