In February Salida Mountain Trails (SMT) hosted an information-sharing session with Outside 285, a community collaborative that developed a wildlife model, which was used as the foundation of the local Chaffee county wildlife model, and then a trails plan. SMT has provided a recording of that session and a link to more information here.
