Leo Gomolchak Conservation Grant Program

The Cheyenne Mountain Chapter (CMCTU) has been awarded funding from Colorado Trout Unlimited under the Leo Gomolchak Conservation Grant Program for the establishment of an online forum /electronic archive site to improve collaboration and dissemination of information within the TU community, regarding the efforts of the various TU entities, federal and state agencies and other NGOs to protect and restore the
Greenback Cutthroat trout throughout its native range.

Impact:

  • This effort will create a means to coordinate and collaborate from TU national, to CTU to 10+local chapters on a common theme.
  • Create a single authoritative repository of data on the restoration and protection of the Greenback cutthroat. This will simplify and streamline efforts and coordinate responses whether it be to influence the political process, obtain funding, provide visibility, or quickly respond in cases where legal action may be required.
  • Provide for a well-documented best practice that can be used in other efforts to reestablish and/or protect native cutthroat populations, or protect genetic diversity of wild populations.

We need to help to be successfull!

 Colorado Springs hands Jones Park to El Paso County

 "The Colorado Springs City Council signed over a 1,191-acre swath of forestland known as Jones Park to El Paso County, which promises to keep the land open to the public.

 The council voted 7-2 on Tuesday to give the city-owned land in Pike National Forest to the county's park system. Council members Helen Collins and Andy Pico voted against donating the land, which recently was appraised at $2.4 million if sold without restrictions on potential uses, and $1.2 million if potential buyers had to guarantee keeping public access.

 El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark was excited about the land deal, saying that the county expects the deal to be finalized by mid-February - then planning trails and public use will begin.

 "We will get the title transferred and then start working with the federal government," Clark said.

 Jones Park straddles El Paso and Teller counties and had been in the city's ownership since the 1890s ...."
