In its eleventh year, the Colorado College State of the Rockies Project has set its sight on a topic of key importance to the Rocky Mountain region’s peoples and environment: Large Landscape Conservation. Throughout the year, we will utilize this Research section of our blog to update our followers on the Project’s work. With student-faculty collaborative research efforts at the heart of our work, and a growing element of social media and field research, we find ourselves submersed in critical issues throughout the Rockies region both physically and in the form of our investigations on campus. Stay tuned to hear more about the workings of the Project and some of the various initiatives we’re undertaking.
