Why We Do It
We value Colorado’s Natural Resources. Most of our members are land managers that face the challenge of protecting people, communities, forests, grasslands, clean water, wildlife habitat. We believe Rx Fire is one important and useful tool to help manage the wildlands we all cherish.
Managing Natural Resources is a complex challenge. Reasons to manage include protecting communities, ensuring we have clean water, improving wildlife habitat, restoring landscapes to former conditions. There are many ways to manage both public and private lands to meet these objectives. Prescribed fire is one important and useful tool in the toolbox used by land managers.
