The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland (ARP) is located in north central Colorado. The forests and grassland encompasses 1.5 million acres and extends north to the Wyoming border, south of Interstate 70 to Mount Evans, west across the Continental Divide to the Williams Fork area and includes short grass prairie east of I-25. The forests and grassland is head-quartered in Fort Collins, with district offices in Boulder, Fort Collins, Idaho Springs, Granby and Greeley.

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.
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.
