Featured Project: Swanson Ranch Forest Restoration
NoCo Fireshed partners from the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed (CPRW) and the Larimer Conservation District have joined forces to complete a 200 acre forest restoration project located in Red Feather Lakes, CO. The treatment unit is near South Lone Pine Creek, an important water supply for the City of Greeley, which serves approx. 140,000 people. Mitigating wildfire risk on these properties will directly protect this vital water supply.
The primary project objectives of this mechanical forest restoration treatment include: forest health restoration, wildfire mitigation, habitat and diversity improvement, protecting water quality, and protecting WUI infrastructure.
