The RMRI leadership and partnership meeting held in the Upper South Platte landscape Sept. 26-27 brought together various partners from across the state. Discussions centered on the vital role prescribed fire plays in landscape management. Following the meeting, partners conducted a field tour to three sites where conservation work had occurred over the past year.
Touring the Upper South Platte landscape revealed the distinct challenges that RMRI partners work with every day. As part of the U.S. Forest Service's Colorado Front Range Landscape and one of 10 initial landscapes within the Wildfire Crisis Strategy, the Upper South Platte region plays a pivotal role in ongoing efforts.
