Due to the September 2013 flood, the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland officials have closed some roads, trails, and facilities on the Boulder and Canyon Lakes ranger districts. Please use caution in all flood affected areas. Check our Flood Recovery page for closure details and information about the ARP's response to the flood.
The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland are thrilled to announce that we now have a Facebook page in partnership with the National Forest Foundation. This will be a great way to look for updates about your favorite places to visit the Forest near Fort Collins, Boulder, Nederland, Evergreen, Idaho Springs, Winter Park and Grand Lake. We will also share photos and volunteer opportunities through this site, as well as information about projects and events. Please “like” our page today and help spread the word: https://www.facebook.com/usfsarp.
Colorado weather and travel can be unpredictable. The state was greatly impacted by heavy September rains in 2013. Some roads and campgrounds, normally open this time of year, remain closed due to the flood or other issues. Conditions can quickly change and wildfires can become a concern. See the July /August Tip of the Month for the steps you can take to be safe.
This report provides highlights of our accomplishments in 2012. The 2013 Accomplishment Report should be available late Spring 2014. We hope you enjoy this issue and seeing these accomplishments as you visit the forest and grassland.
