May 7, 2007 Geog 1001 Lab: Friday 12pm Succession in Chautauqua Park The ecosystem of Chautauqua Park is always changing. Many plants and animals both directly and indirectly effect the growth within this amazing park. Many of the plants and shrubs at Chautauqua serve a greater purpose than beauty.

The goal of this study is to analyze forest succession in two ecosystems located at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado. What we are expecting to uncover is that the forest has been not been succeeding quickly into the town of Boulder, which was formally grasslands. The team used a wide variety of equipment in determining succession at Chautauqua
