The town of Eagle will hold its first event to get public input on the development of a master plan for town-owned open spaces and trails on Thursday, Sept. 23.

The plan will “provide guidance and stewardship strategies for the town, in coordination with regional partners and the community, to enhance outdoor recreation experiences, engage the local community, and protect local wildlife and wildlife habitats,” a press release from the town states.

The 10-year plan will address “open space preservation, trail maintenance, trail expansion, wildlife protection,” among other things.

The town’s Open Space and Recreation Advisory Committee, together with the Eagle Valley Outdoor Movement, will host a field trip to the Brush Creek Open Space beginning at 10 a.m. on Sept. 23, according to the release.

The committee is partnering with the Walking Mountains Science Center to lead an informational walk around the area’s trails starting at Brush Creek Pavilion at 909 Capitol Street in Eagle.
