This has been a great multi-year habitat project that has spanned 5 different phases so far, and the Colorado State Chapter-NWTF has been involved in every phase. Kim Woodruff (CPW DWM/Biologist) has spearheaded this effort with the CPW, NWTF and many other organizations. Kim is also an active committee member with the Top of the World Chapter in Salida.
