Master Plan Meeting, July 31, 2014
July 31 is the third in a series of master planning meetings that the Big Thompson River Restoration Coalition is holding for landowners and other stakeholders to provide input into the master planning process and share with the Coalition their most important concerns about long-term river restoration. Preliminary recommendations for restoration and design plans will be presented and stakeholders will be encouraged to provide feedback. The Master Planning meetings are an opportune time to learn about flood mechanics and river ecology that influence good long-term river restoration work. Due to space limitations, and given the geographic scope of this master planning effort, we ask that only those landowners and stakeholders who live and play between the Olympus Dam and the Confluence with the South Platte River, including the North Fork and its tributaries, attend this meeting. For more information about coalition activities please contact Lukas McNally, email@example.com, 970-493-2075.
WHEN: Thursday, July 31 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 PM
WHERE: Thompson School District Administrative Building, 800 South Taft Avenue Loveland, CO 80537.
PRESS CONTACT: Lukas McNally, Watershed Coordinator: 970-493-2075 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Who We Are
The Big Thompson River Restoration Coalition (BTRC) is a coalition of government, private landowners, and non-profit organizations working to implement restoration of the Big Thompson River after the flooding in September 2013. BTRRC has established teams of technical advisors to visit sections of river, providing ecological and restoration recommendations for rapid response and long-term efforts. BTRRC also aims to obtain resources and recruit volunteers for approved restoration projects along the Big Thompson River corridor, and sign stakeholders up for participation in long-term restoration projects. In addition, the BTRRC facilitates communication between stakeholders and agencies that provide funding and/or authorization for river restoration projects.
