Conservation education focuses on developing scientifically sound messages and materials for use by personnel, partners and Colorado citizens. Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) strategic priorities define subject area emphases for our messages and materials.
This educational approach:
- increases awareness and understanding by Colorado citizens regarding key forestry issues and the roles citizens can play in addressing those issues;
- enables Coloradans to recognize the diverse environmental benefits provided by forest ecosystems;
- motivates homeowners, landowners and communities to take positive action; and
- provides scientifically sound information to decision-makers so that they may respond appropriately to forestry and wildland fire issues.
