Rocky Mountain Restoration Initiative
Collaborative effort for
increased focus, scale and pace
Increasing the resilience of our forests, wildlife habitats, communities, recreation opportunities, and water resources across all lands in the Rocky Mountains.
Embrace Shared Stewardship principles by building a collaborative foundation to address challenges and identify opportunities and potential solutions leading to measurable and scalable results in the restoration of critical landscapes in the Rocky Mountains.
RMRI partners engage in activities that support these four values:
Forests & Wildlife
RMRI has chosen to initially focus resources on three landscapes having the greatest impact on Colorado to reach a scale comparable to the needs on the ground.
RMRI’s marquee project working to restore over 300,000 acres of public and private lands in priority areas across their 750,000 acre project area.
Additional RMRI landscape working to restore 30,000-45,000 acres of public and private lands in priority areas across their 900,000 acre project area.
Upper South Platte
Additional RMRI landscape working to restore 150,000 acres of public and private lands in priority areas across their 885,000 acre watershed.
Our goal is to find the right places to do the right work at the right scale at the right time. Co-convened by the National Wild Turkey Federation and the U.S. Forest Service, RMRI mobilizes over 40 partners across Colorado to deliver cross-boundary solutions to three priority landscapes that were selected through our stakeholder driven process.
