Clear Creek Watershed & Forest Health Partnership

It is the mission of the Clear Creek Watershed & Forest Health Partnership to engage in collaborative, cross-jurisdictional planning and implementation of wildfire risk mitigation and forest health projects within the Clear Creek watershed. The Clear Creek Watershed spans from its western edge at the Continental Divide to the urbanized plains outside of Denver where Clear Creek joins the South Platte River. The entire watershed covers an area of 575 square miles, with 400 square miles located in the ‘upper’ watershed in the mountains west of Golden. Nearly two-thirds of the upper Clear Creek watershed lies within the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests and is administered by the Clear Creek Ranger District in Clear Creek, Gilpin, and Jefferson Counties.
