The Colorado Forest Collaboratives Network is hitting the road!
The purpose of this network is to benefit and support place-based forest collaboratives in Colorado by connecting them to information, resources, and each other, and by telling their stories to make their value and needs understood.
Building on what we have identified in our Situation Assessment and one-on-one conversations about collaboratives’ key challenges and needs, we need your input on next steps to support you and your group. At these meetings, we will map partner relationships across the state, workshop ideas for how the Network can best support Colorado’s forest collaboratives, and walk away with actionable next steps for the Network moving forward.
Join us for one of four regional forums in September:
- Durango – Thursday, September 1st
- Fort Collins – Tuesday, September 13th
- Colorado Springs – Thursday, September 15th
- Glenwood Springs – Tuesday, September 27th

Which forum(s) should I attend?
We are hosting four regional meetings across the state. We encourage you to attend whichever makes the most sense for you based on where your work is focused, what groups you commonly interact with, meeting location, and timing. You are even welcome to attend multiple meetings, if you would like!
