AIM-Red Hill Project

Before fuel break mitigation


After fuel break mitigation


The AIM-Red Hill Project entailed shaded fuel break mitigation of approximately 14 acres along Colorado State Highway 12 beginning just north of Red Hill and extending south past, and including, the entrance to the Pine Haven subdivision. Funding for this work came from the Action and Implementation for Mitigation (AIM) program, offered through Coalitions and Collaboratives (COCO). It was facilitated with help from the County, publicly donated monies and volunteer hours for the matching portion of the $3,500 provided by SPAWP.

2019 CSFS Forest Restoration and Wildfire Risk Mitigation

SPAWP received another grant on March 16th from the Colorado State Forest Service. The $63,092 awarded is a reimbursement/matching grant under their Forest Restoration and Wildfire Risk Mitigation (FRWRM) program. The funds help to further reduce heavy wildland fuel loads of dead and decaying trees, trees too close to buildings and roads, lower tree limbs or ladder fuel and brush.
