Glenwood Bench




Plate 224. GLENWOOD BENCH 1931-2000 Viewed east to the hills above of Glenwood, Utah. Soil erosion was active in 1931 but has been eliminated with the implementation of modern range management. The foreground, however, has burned at least once and cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) is common, although native bunchgrasses, such as Stipa comata, are also present. The few remaining shrubs are mostly greasewood (Sarcobatus vermiculatus). The flat area has also been used as a local dumping ground, firing range, and ATV practice course.
