Proudly Serving Clear Creek, Denver, Jefferson and Northeast Park Counties
The Golden District of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 17 districts located throughout Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). Our headquarters is located on the CSU Foothills Campus in Fort Collins.
Our mission is to achieve stewardship of Colorado's diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations.
The Golden District has assisted the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife for more than thirty years in maintaining healthy forests, reducing wildfire hazards and improving wildlife habitat on local properties such as the Mt. Evans State Wildlife Area, Staunton State Park and Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
We support private landowners efforts to manage their forestlands through forest stewardship planning, insect and disease detection and control, and technical support and inspections for more than 160 forest agriculture properties. The district also assists Denver Mountain Parks, the Denver Water Board and Jefferson County Open Space through forest management activities on these locally-owned public lands.
The Golden District has been active in wildland-urban interface concerns for more than twenty years and continues to assist county planners and private developers review and implement wildfire mitigation plans for subdivisions, to help private landowners plan their defensible space activities around homesites, and to facilitate community wildfire planning and fuels reduction activities.
CSFS provides landowners with technical assistance and educational materials. We emphasize landscape-scale management and interagency cooperation.
