Lower Poudre Community Meeting & Survey

We are developing a Lower Poudre River Flood Recovery and Resilience Master Plan to help us better protect the lower Poudre River from future flood and erosion problems. The project study area includes the Poudre River east of I-25 to where it meets the South Platte River. Please also share your thoughts on the lower Poudre River with this short survey.




Post-fire Restoration with Odell Brewing!
Odell employees and our partners at Wildlands Restoration Volunteers helped us with one of our post-fire restoration projects to stabilize a gulley that was formed after the High Park Fire. Volunteers braved soggy shoes, steep slopes, heavy rocks & logs and poison ivy to help us install structures into the gulley that will help reduce erosion and sediment from entering the Poudre River. A big shout out to these amazing Odell volunteers, a project like this could not be done without them! 






CPRW Post-fire Restoration Volunteer Opportunity!

We need your help finishing up the post-fire restoration project that Odell employees started! If you're interested in volunteering with CPRW to complete the installation of the gulley structures on Saturday September 30 please email Hally! Volunteers will help carry logs and rocks and assist with the construction & completion of the gulley structures. Volunteers must wear sturdy hiking boots and long pants. 




Learn from the Burn: The High Park Fire 5 years Later
The High Park Fire was ignited five years ago on June 9, 2012 and burned over 85,000 acres in the Poudre watershed. Last fall, CPRW organized a workshop with the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station to discuss what has been learned about our response to the fire. The May/June 2017 Rocky Mountain Research Station Science You Can Use Bulletin reviews the topics and science discussed during the workshop last fall. Click here to read the bulletin.
