DescriptionThe Strawberry Ridge Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) is west of Woodruff, Utah and west of Birch Creek Reservoir. In the west the Unit starts at a high elevation of 8500 feet, then moving east drops down to Woodruff Park, around 7800 feet, then rises again to Strawberry Ridge, 8100 feet in the west to 7600 feet in the east. Birch Creek cuts the unit on the north side of Strawberry Ridge and runs nearly the length of the Unit, ranging from 6900 feet to 8400 feet. On the south side of the Strawberry Ridge is Walton Canyon. This canyon contains State Highway 39 and ranges from 7300 feet to 8000 feet elevation. The most common elevation is 7700 feet but ranges from 6900 feet to 8600 feet with an elevation difference of 1700 feet. Fifty-six percent (56%) of the CWMU elevation ranges between 7600 feet and 7900 feet an elevation difference of 300 feet.
Inter-Mountain Basins Montane Sagebrush Steppe (62) covers over eighty percent (80%) of the Strawberry Ridge Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) in northern Utah. The only other land cover of any significance is Rocky Mountain Aspen Forest and Woodland (22), and it is primarily on the west side of the Unit.
