CSU Center for Collaborative Conservation / Colorado Forest Collaboratives Network

The Center for Collaborative Conservation (CCC) was established in CSU’s Warner College of Natural Resources in 2008 to inform, promote, and support collaboration on tough conservation issues across Colorado, the American West, and the world.

The Colorado Forest Collaboratives Network (housed within the CCC) was created in 2022 to benefit and support place-based forest collaboratives in Colorado by connecting them to information, resources, and each other, and by telling their stories to make their value and needs understood.

Key services:
  • Branching Out: Monthly learning/networking series (virtual)
  • Annual Colorado Forest Collaboratives Summit: flagship event to connect & learn with fellow place-based forest collaboratives and partners (in person)
  • Colorado Forest Health Council resources:
  • CFCN Coordinator Katie McGrath Novak currently sits on the Colorado Forest Health Council as 'an individual employed by or associated with a forest collaborative organization.”
  • Please reach out to Katie directly if you have ideas, comments, etc. for the Council. Visit our webpage for resources including summaries of each quarterly meeting.
  • Mailing list: the most up-to-date information about events & opportunities for the CFCN!
