FOLBR - Friends Of the Lower Blue River

Climate Resiliency Update

We have worked to secure funding from Colorado Parks and Wildlife for our Dynamic Wetlands Wildlife Initiative. In the weeks ahead, through the summer and fall, our partner EcoMetrics will be treating 37 acres on private property with Beaver Dam Analogs (manmade structure which mirror beaver dam construction) for biodiversity, habitat for species and carbon capture. 

In tandem with this project, our other partner Grand Environmental will begin additional wetland mapping throughout the Lower Blue River Valley. The mapping will inform us on potential streams for examination and help plan for more ecological uplifts in the future. We look forward to sharing more from the field this summer and fall.
