The Colorado Wildlife Conservation Board (CWCB) and Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is presenting Colorado Landscape Summit – transformative Change for a Resilient Future on November 9 at 9:00 am – 4: 00 pm. It will be held at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms, 8500 West Deer Creek Canyon Road in Littleton. The Summit is free. The timing is very good as the Governor signed into law the “Cash for Turf” bill earlier this year. Funds were appropriated by the general assembly to implement the program beginning in July for residential, commercial, and industrial categories. Also CWCB’s draft 2023 Colorado Water Plan is available for viewing. (The comment deadline was September 30 and CWF submitted a comment letter.) CWF is a founding member of the Colorado Native Landscape Coalition (along with Colorado Native Plant Society, Audubon Society, People and Pollinators Action Network, and Wild Ones) and so is particularly interested in this Summit. Note that CWF partners with National Wildlife Federation to offer the backyard habitat certification program in Colorado. For information, go to the tab on our homepage – under Programs, click on garden habitat certification.
