Annotation: This report lists practices developed to reduce the impacts of oil and gas development activities to plants of concern in Colorado. The report lists BMPs for seventeen globally imperiled plants found in oil and gas development areas of Colorado. The BMPs listed are intended to be iterative, and to evolve as additional information becomes available about Colorado’s botanical diversity, and as resource extraction and resource conservation technologies develop.
