Effective fuels-reduction projects help protect Summit County communities and watersheds from the threat of wildfire.
Interested community members can download a grant application from Summit County’s Colorado State University Extension page, http://www.co.summit.co.us/extension. Grant applications will be accepted through April 26. Please call Dan Schroder at (970) 668-4140 for more information.
