In November of 1992, the community voted to fund Fort Collins Natural Areas with a quarter-cent sales tax which led to the conservation of over 55,000 acres and counting. This effort was initiated by a committed and thoughtful group of citizens including current Councilmember, Kelly Ohlson. Stay up to date on the series of activities and events by visiting Engage.
