The Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program works to restore the health of the forest and watershed, reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires, combat invasive species, and improve wildlife habitat on the Uncompahgre Plateau. On Friday and Saturday, we'll be visiting areas on the north end of the UP to look at past and potential treatment sites. We'll camp overnight at the Cold Springs Ranger Station. People can attend one or both days. If you're someone who recreates on, helps manage, or uses the UP, you're welcome to join us.
