Front Range Roundtable

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."
Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP) Monitoring Team

As of 2012, collaborative CFLRP monitoring takes place as part of the Roundtable’s Science and Monitoring Team, as one of that team’s goals. The CFLRP Monitoring Team functions as part of the SM Team.
