FOLBR - Friends Of the Lower Blue River

Safe Soils/Climate Resiliency Update

State Representative, and Speaker of the House Julie McCluskie and Summit County Commissioner Josh Blanchard were among the advisory committee members who reviewed the findings of our Phase 1 research. FOLBR's Safe Soils/Climate Resiliency Initiative now moves to identify the prescriptions needed to address environmental opportunities identified in Phase 1 research.

Our Advisory Committee is made up of County, State and Federal stakeholders who are committed to addressing climate change. Our thanks to our robust team members Caitlin Miller and Mark Volt of the Middle Park Conservation District, Stephen Jaouen and Kara Vigneau of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Cindy Lair with the Colorado Department of Agriculture and FOLBR Board Members Sam Kirk and George Resseguie for their participation.

We are developing prescriptive projects to recommend to our partner ranchers. We are looking to expand our focus to other private and public lands in the Blue River Valley.

These efforts will cost money. We are developing the strategic plan and budget for implementation. We are looking to our members, friends and governmental sources to help achieve climate action goals this year, and in the years ahead.
