Conservation in Colorado news

Everyone at Mirr Ranch Group is back in the office today after two information-packed days at New Era of Conservation 2008, the annual policy conference for the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts. Mirr Ranch Group would like to thank all of those who helped put the conference together, including Jill Ozarski and Jordan Beezely of CCLT; K-Lynn Cameron, Kerri Rollins and Windy Kelley of the Larimer County Open Lands Program; as well as all sponsors, planning committee members and CCLT board members. The conservation community appreciates all you did to make the event happen.
