The Northern Colorado Fireshed Collaborative is a network of individuals and organizations representing watershed coalitions and forest health partnerships, local governments and districts, researchers, state and federal agencies, and more, all bringing their own perspectives and expertise. We are collaborating to maximize the use of fire and other forest management techniques to increase the pace and scale of treatments needed to tackle the challenge of making our forests healthy and resilient, our water supplies reliable, and our communities safer.
The Northern Colorado Fireshed Collaborative (NCFC) spans the Front Range from the Wyoming border through Clear Creek County.
