WESTERN COLORADO LANDSCAPE COLLABORATIVE
SUSTAINING HEALTHY LANDS FOR VIBRANT COMMUNITIES
Can you imagine life without our colorful aspen forests, recreational trails and abundant clean running rivers? The members of the Western Colorado Landscape Collaborative (WCLC) work to keep our wild lands healthy.
The WCLC supports a large array of programs and projects aimed at improving the health of our natural lands including:
- Restoring forests to improve wildlife habitat and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires.
- Controlling invasive weeds and seeding with locally-sourced native plants.
- Working with local landowners to protect sage-grouse habitat while keeping family ranches intact.
- Helping students discover the wonders of nature and learn how to monitor the health of the land.
The following organizations work collaboratively to be more efficient and effective in leveraging funds and expertise:
- The Public Lands Partnership
- U.S. Forest Service
- Bureau of Land Management
- Colorado Parks & Wildlife
- Western Area Power Administration
- Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association
- Uncompahgre/Com, Inc. (a nonprofit nonprofit)
