The Front Range Roundtable was formed to "serve as a focal point for diverse stakeholder input into efforts to reduce wildland fire risks and improve forest health through sustained fuels treatment along the Colorado Front Range."
Roundtable is a coalition of individuals from state and federal agencies, local
governments, environmental and conservation organizations, the academic and
scientific communities, and industry and user groups, all with a commitment to
forest health and fire risk mitigation along Colorado’s Front Range. The Roundtable’s focus area encompasses
10 Front Range counties: Boulder, Clear Creek, Douglas, El Paso, Gilpin, Grand,
Jefferson, Larimer, Park and Teller.
in the wake of the record-setting 2002 wildfire season, the Roundtable has
brought tremendous attention and new resources to the forests of the Front
Range and has become a recognized national leader in collaborative approaches
to forest management.
work of the Roundtable is focused on community and watershed protection and the
restoration of more ecologically resilient conditions for the future. Our specific activities center on
addressing the 1.5 million acres of forest land we’ve collaboratively
identified as in need of treatment and on pursuing additional policy and
economic solutions to ensure our goals can be accomplished.
