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."
Wildlife Working Team

The Wildlife Working Team 

The Wildlife Working Team was formed in 2012 as a subgroup of the Landscape Restoration Team. They are charged with prioritizing an abridged list of species to monitor from the 2011 CFLRP Monitoring Plan, setting population trends for each target species expected if forest restoration is achieved, and recommending data collection and monitoring methods for each target species given funding constraints and monitoring methods in use.
