Forest Service seeks project proposals to benefit Larimer County

The U.S. Forest Service is seeking applications for projects that would enhance forest ecosystems or restore and improve land health and water quality on the Pike and San Isabel National Forests, Roosevelt National Forest and other near-by lands in Chaffee, Huerfano, Lake, Larimer and Park counties.

At this time, the Pike and San Isabel Resource Advisory Committee is accepting project proposals. The deadline for submittal is March 22. Proposals must be submitted online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/psicc . Go to Quick Links, PSI-RAC, Pike & San Isabel Resource Advisory Committee, Project Summary, PSI-RAC Projects Website, Link to Submit New Project Form.

The PSI-RAC works closely with the U.S. Forest Service to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, soils, watersheds and other resources; maintain roads, trails and other infrastructure; or control noxious weeds. PSI-RAC projects must be located on National Forest System lands in Larimer, Chaffee, Huerfano, Lake or Park counties or on other nearby lands if the project will benefit the resources on the National Forests. Projects can be completed by U.S. Forest Service personnel, through partnership agreements or by open-bid contracting with individuals and corporations.

In addition, proponents should include a support letter for the project from the District Ranger and County Commissioners and submit the letters to the PSI-RAC Coordinator at:
