Steve ReevesColorado Water Conservation Board

    As a Watershed and Flood Protection Specialist at the Colorado Water Conservation Board, Steven Reeves plays a pivotal role in post-wildfire recovery and hazard mitigation. Prior to his current role, Steven had a decade of experience living in Grand County where he immersed himself in residential fuel reduction logging and served as a volunteer firefighter for Grand Lake Fire.

    While currently a weekend warrior behind the chainsaw, Steven actively engages with Community Wildfire Protection Plans across the state. His commitment is underscored by his recent attendance at a Community Wildfire Mitigation Best Practices Training. Steven aims to bridge the gap between forest health and watershed management, bringing a water-oriented perspective to the Fire Adapted Colorado Board.

    Armed with a master’s degree in Hydrology from the Colorado School of Mines, Steven seeks to facilitate the cross-pollination of knowledge between the realms of fire and water. His goal is to contribute to landscape-level management decisions with multi-disciplinary inputs, creating efficient and effective mitigation opportunities. Steven’s passion lies in engaging communities and fostering collaboration for a resilient and fire-adapted Colorado.
