Great Plains Trail Alliance had a nice meeting yesterday with the Plains Conservation Center in Aurora, Colorado. Their mission is holistic grassland conservation as well as providing educational opportunities in the grasslands of eastern Colorado. I’m particularly fond of their tagline: “Find Your Roots in the Grasslands.” Brilliant. They own about 1,100 acres in Aurora which serves as their main educational facility for school groups to visit, as well as about 10,000 acres an hour east on Denver where they maintain 250 head of bison, and host special events. It’s an exciting organization filled with potential and promise. Great Plains Trail Alliance is looking forward to working with them on future projects and events.
If you have a chance, check them out and go visit their site if you can!
