The Chung Tai Zen Center of Boulder is a Buddhist Zen Center and Monastery to be located on a rural, 35-acre property east of the City of Boulder. Birch Ecology has proudly supported Sopher Sparn Architects by serving as project ecologist for the Zen Center land use reviews and approvals through Boulder County. Birch Ecology produced the Ecological Assessment and Wetland Delineation Report. In addition, Birch prepared a detailed Revegetation and Weed Control Plan working with the project’s landscape architects, MARPA Landscape Architecture, and the engineers at JVA. The project has been designed with a focus on environmental sensitivity and the goal of enhancing and protecting ecological resources in the project area. Birch worked with the engineering and design team to develop a plan that protects wetlands, riparian vegetation, and water quality, and to locate the proposed structures away from sensitive habitat types. Birch also developed a detailed Integrated Weed Management Plan as a part of the Revegetation and Weed Control Plan, in support of the goals for minimizing pesticide use and organic farming within the Conservation Easement.
