Mountain ‘backdrop’ info now on-line

BOULDER — Information about a project to protect Colorado’s mountain “backdrop” from the Wyoming border to Pike’s Peak, west of Colorado Springs, is now on-line.

The new Front Range Mountain Backdrop site, funded by Great Outdoors Colorado, was developed by representatives from Boulder, Larimer, Jefferson, Douglas and El Paso counties, all members of the backdrop project. The goal is to keep scenic and ecological integrity of Front Range mountains.

The Web site includes information about the history of the Front Range Mountain Backdrop Project, a map showing the study area, a schedule and information about upcoming meetings and events, and a list of contacts for each county involved in the project. The latest news about the project can be accessed in the section describing upcoming events.

The site also contains a section devoted to portraying the scenic beauty of the mountain backdrop. “The “photo gallery” showcases images by photographer Jack Ekin. His work is devoted to photo documenting Colorado landscapes, and his work was recently featured in the Denver Post Empire Magazine.

The Web site address is boco.co.gov/lu/frmbd/frames.htm. Call 830-1188.
