Colorado's forests provide aesthetic values, clean water, wildlife habitat, recreation, minerals and renewable resources including forage and timber.  The White River and Douglas Creek Conservation Districts support and encourage active management of Colorado's forests to protect your way of life and health. 

Forest restoration projects not only protect water from sedimentation, but also improve forest health and habitat, decrease firefighting costs, and reduce home loss and infrastructure damage. Our goal is to accelerate forest restoration to reduce the threat of severe wildfire, with your assistance, and with collaboratives across our county and state.
