Teller County’s local paper, the Pikes Peak Courier View has a great article about our Teller County survey of critical biological resources happening right now. Teller County is the 34th major inventory project since CNHP began these projects in 1992. This kind of inventory work is what forms the core of our mission to build and maintain Colorado’s most comprehensive biodiversity database.
Be sure to check out this excellent summary of the project with pictures of and quotes from CNHP ecologists Denise Culver and Allison Shaw. These two, along with a number of other CNHP employees, are hard at work surveying the rare and imperiled animals, plants, and natural communities that call Teller County home.
