Great Outdoors Colorado awarded the partners’ grant proposal nearly full funding in this special grant cycle. This $5.1 million will significantly enhance recreation and conservation in the lower Poudre River Corridor, and move the Poudre River Trail to within five miles of completion. Once constructed, this paved trail will provide for recreational and transportation use along its full 45-mile length between Bellvue, north of Fort Collins, and Island Grove Park in Greeley.
Project partners, elected officials and board members from Great Outdoors Colorado will be on hand to discuss the project and its importance to the communities of Larimer and Weld Counties.
This special event had originally been scheduled for June 20, but was rescheduled due to the High Park Fire.
