Colorado Prairie Initiative

The purposes of the Colorado Prairie Initiative are to aid the restoration of the prairie ecosystems across the eastern portion of Colorado; to protect and conserve native species of wild prairie plants and animals; to make the prairie ecosystem more accessible to the public; to begin the long and difficult task of restoring the grasslands to their former vitality and beauty; and to use all legal means to carry out these objectives.

We have been involved in raising funds to build wildlife ladders for stock tanks located on the Eastern Plains.  Birds and small mammals climb into stock tanks for water, find that they can't climb back out and then drown.  Each wildlife ladder costs only $7.00 to make!  We have helped CPI raise funds for 100 ladders but they have been approached by farmers and ranchers to install 500 more!  For more information about this volunteer-based non-profit
