RES biologists conducted a successful prairie dog relocation of 151 individuals from the urban Armory site in north Boulder to a large grassland habitat in southern Boulder County, Colorado. Trapping success was extremely high and RES was able to relocate 95+% of the population within the first two days. According to the City of Boulder, within a month after the prairie dogs were relocated, a Burrowing Owl and other wildlife species were observed utilizing the newly formed colony.

(NOTE: Flushing, a methodology not generally recommended by RES, was performed by a separate contractor at the end of the project for those few prairie dogs that were untrappable.)
