Webinar: Up your wildfire resilience!

Resources, funding, programs and research to aid Colorado communities and watersheds

Wildfires in Colorado have grown more frequent, intense, large and destructive and are projected to intensify and burn larger areas in the coming decades, with impacts to water quality, hydrology, and communities. 

Join us on Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. for a webinar where we'll hear about new funding and frameworks to build more wildfire-ready watersheds and communities. We'll also hear about locally-generated funding and initiatives at work and dive into some big-picture thinking around shared stewardship.

We'll hear about the Colorado Department of Natural Resource's new Colorado Strategic Wildfire Action Program (COSWAP) and funding opportunities that it's launching early this year; the Wildfire Ready Watersheds Program led by the Colorado Water Conservation Board; and Chaffee County's Envision Forest Health Council and self-imposed sales tax to fund wildfire risk reduction work. Come prepared to learn and to ask questions!

With speakers: 
Angela Boag, Assistant Director for Climate, Forest Health and Energy, Department of Natural Resources
Alison Lerch, Program Administrator, Colorado Strategic Wildfire Action Program, Department of Natural Resources
Chris Sturm, Watershed Program Director, Colorado Water Conservation Board
Greg Felt, Chaffee County Commissioner
