Looking Back & Looking Forward

After reflecting on the past 30 years of Natural Areas history, it's time to look ahead to the future. Next year you will be invited to engage in conversations about the Natural Areas Strategic Framework which will update the 2014 Natural Areas Master Plan. This important City Council-adopted plan will set the vision for the next decade. There will be many opportunities in 2024 and 2025 to share your voice and let the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department know what’s most important to you.
