April 29 and 30, 2022
Colorado Mountain College, Steamboat Springs
The 2021 wildfire season was another record breaker for Colorado, with a much longer fire season and the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history taking place in December in Boulder – the Marshall Fire. Routt County was witness to two wildfires within its boundaries, North and South Routt, with some loss of structures. Fire is and will continue to be part of our environment and we all are exposed to some risk, no matter where we live. Increased fire frequency and intensity is a reality, and the complex challenge of managing and mitigating those fires will continue to be front and center during this year’s Routt County Wildfire Mitigation Conference. We will have local and regional experts present on steps that we all can take – from the individual homeowner to our community stakeholders – to better plan and mitigate risks, and how to be better prepared in the event of a wildfire.
