CPRW and partners receive the 2016 Larimer County Environmental Stewardship Award 


In 2015, CPRW partnered with The Nature Conservancy, Larimer County Conservation Corps, Wildland Restoration Volunteers & the Ben Delatour Scout Ranch to form the Elkhorn Creek Forest Health Initiative (ECFHI). The ECFHI is a collaborative effort that aims to reduce the negative impacts of catastrophic wildfires to protect forest health, water supplies, and communities. The ECFHI also seeks to build the capacity to reduce wildfire risk work by training volunteers and youth to implement wildfire mitigation safely and effectively.  Every year, the Larimer County Environmental Advisory Board and Larimer County Commissioners recognize the innovative and proactive environmental efforts of county residents, businesses, organizations and/or agencies through the Environmental Stewardship work. Thanks to the Scout Ranch for nominating our group and Larimer County for recognizing our efforts with this award!
