Whats Happening

FOLBR Climate Resiliency Initiative Update

The FOLBR Climate Resiliency/Safe Soils Initiative will be ramping up significantly in the month of June. Scientists from our Eco Consulting firm Geosyntec will be gathering taking several soil samples at each of our four partner ranch, targeting the varied landscapes. If the weather cooperates, we will be in the field the week of June 13th. Once soil samples are taken, they will be analyzed. We will then be a step closer to meeting with all our partner ranchers to share information on soil health and the ability to capture greenhouse gases.

Our goal is to share a series of prescriptions to help landowners improve their properties in the Blue River Valley. Initially, we're focusing on private lands. But what we learn will also serve to benefit County, State and Federal lands. We will be completely transparent offering our data to anyone who wants it.

We continue to thank our ranch partners: Pass Creek, Blue Tree, Otter Creek and Blue Valley for their tremendous cooperation in this important initiative. We will continue to keep you posted as we progress.
