Collaborations and Partnerships
Our Secret Sauce: Collaboration
CFRI serves as a bridge between knowledge development (research) and knowledge application (implementation). We collaborate with dozens of partners across forestry and wildfire research, management, and policy to support planning, prioritization, monitoring, and adaptive management. CFRI works across ownership boundaries, spatial scales, and decision-making levels to strategically target outcomes-based investments that enhance forest resilience and reduce wildfire risk across forest landscapes.
CFRI partners in many different projects across Colorado and the Southwestern US

CFRI Collaborative Philosophy
Through collaboration and forest science research and monitoring, CFRI offers actionable knowledge in the form of locally relevant, locally appropriate, science-informed solutions. We give meaning to data so it can be used to support science-based decision making.
CFRI maintains website pages for three collaborative groups
Upper South Platte Partnership (USPP) PURPOSE Since 2015, the Upper South Platte Partnership (USPP) has been working with a “stronger together” approach as a collaboration between government agencies, water providers, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and fire protection districts. Together, these …
In Colorado, we conduct field-based research, lead adaptive management processes, and deliver localized science support directly to land managers.
Throughout the central Rocky Mountains we research trends in fire ecology and forest development, and convene collaborative groups across land ownership and agency boundaries.
We engage leaders and agency staff by bringing science-based knowledge to decision-makers at the highest levels.
