I was standing there looking at a trickle running down a very large ditch thinking, “Man, it’s going to be hard to irrigate with that.” It was the summer of 2012, and I was visiting with a ranch manager about options to improve his irrigation system and water delivery while also improving flows in Ohio Creek.
The CSU Tri River Area Extension, in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service, is once again offering seedling trees for conservation purposes. There is no acreage restriction to purchase the seedling trees in Mesa, Delta, Montrose and Ouray counties.
The Public Lands Partnership (PLP) is seeking individuals to work together as the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forest continues its efforts on an environmental impact statement focused on a spruce beetle epidemic and aspen decline management response.
The PLP is committed to a rich dialogue and concentrated efforts to increase public awareness and outreach, to better define and understand potential issues and concerns, and to clearly articulate objectives and process for public participation during implementation of the adaptive management approach to a landscape scale issue.
