Ecosystem Health

Ecosystem Health

Colorado’s mountain watersheds have a strong influence on the quality and quantity of water. Healthy watersheds provide ecosystem services that benefit ecological processes, local and state economies, and social stability. Approximately 80 percent of Colorado’s population relies on forested watersheds to deliver municipal water supplies. Ecosystem health management strategies are efforts that protect and restore our natural ecosystem services, wildlife, and diverse plant communities.
