ProjectFirma Helps Water Fund Improve Forest Health and Protect Water in Colorado

In the Peaks to People Water Fund's Summer 2018 Newsletter, their executive director, Heather Schinkel, announced the launch of the Watershed Health Outcomes Tracker. This valuable online tool enables implementers, landowners, and funders to track proposed and active projects across the Cache la Poudre and Big Thompson watersheds in Northern Colorado. Other regional watersheds are expected to be added to the online platform in the future.

Peaks to People Watershed Health Outcomes Tracker

In the newsletter, Heather shared, "We are excited to announce the launch of our new Project Outcomes Tracker, where funders, implementers and citizens can see the benefits of all the work that is being done to restore our forests and protect water supplies."

The Outcomes Tracker, built using our ProjectFirma platform, is sponsored by Peaks to People; however, it is expected to become a clearinghouse for all implementers and funders to be able to track their work by reporting on estimated and actual outcomes of forest health projects in the region. It will also serve as the primary means for proposing projects for funding from Peaks to People.

We're excited to think that what started with a public investment in Lake Tahoe for the EIP Project Tracker is now helping protect salmon in Oregon's Clackamas watershed, ensuring sustainable land practices in California, fostering stewardship across Idaho, and now – with Peaks to People – restoring forests in Colorado's Front Range.
