Peaks to People is co-funding a 250 acre forest health project located in the headwaters of Cottonwood Creek which drains to the Big Thompson River and is headed up by the Big Thompson Conservation District. This and other projects other projects have benefited our local economy through job creation. "By keeping work close to home these contractors have been able to keep operating costs low, forest products local, and trust from the communities strong. It has been inspiring and encouraging to see the creation of 2 logging contractors, 6 jobs, and local wood product use come from the 250-acre Pole Hill forestry project. We look for these contractors to continue to boost the local economies and complete forest restoration projects for years to come."
