"Colorado's beautiful landscapes are ideal for any photographer, whether amateur or veteran," said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. "Our past entries have proven that Colorado photographers can capture the spirit of rural life and its people."

Four Corners is seeking proposals
DENVER The Four Corners Forests Partnership has issued a request for proposals for community based restoration projects, with $500,000 available for granting.
The partnership, which has granted more than $2.1 million since 1999 to communities, tribes, nonprofit organizations and businesses, is seeking proposals that demonstrate a need to transition previous demonstration projects into a sustainable business, while demonstrating the application of new technologies or development of new products associated with materials gained in forest restoration.
