We currently do not have a native plant master program in Grand County so i am not up to date on plant native to Grand Lake Area. I have included a link to the native plant master program in Colorado and it is managed by Barbara Fahey out of the Jefferson County Extension Office. On the site is a link to Colorado native shrubs for you information. If you are wanting to some historical information i would start with Barbara. I have also included a link to Scrub oak fact sheet. Even though it is native to Colorado in some part of Western Colorado they have management plans for it.
