Friends of the Lower Blue River is committed to preserving the rich history of the Blue River Valley. Through grant support from the Summit Foundation, we have created this interactive tool that documents and takes you to key points of interest in the Valley. You will see photographs and read about those who came before us. Those who settled this pristine area of Summit and Grand Counties in the 1800’s and the relevance those sites have today. FOLBR invites you to take this journey on our website and discover the treasure, that truly is the Lower Blue River Valley.Click Here to see History Story Map

Dear Party or Interested Person:
This message from Friends of the Lower Blue River is to clearly explain what is ahead with the Peak Materials proposed gravel mine at Peak Ranch Resource and meetings with the Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety (DRMS)
I had a very productive conversation with Eric Scott, Environmental Protection Specialist for the DRMS. The course of action in the weeks ahead is very specific. And it is important for all of us to understand the process.
