Grand County Natural Resources (GCNR) was created in response to the mounting natural resource issues facing Grand County. These issues include but are not limited to:  invasive species; Threatened and Endangered species; Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic; Forest health issues; and other environmental issues and concerns.

GCNR strives to implement sound natural resource management strategies for the protection and enhancement of local natural resources and to educate and assist the public of Grand County.  GCNR is engaged and involved with numerous natural resource programs and projects across the Grand County landscape. Many of our efforts are coordinated with private landowners, state and federal land management agencies, and our adjacent counties.
