Issues and Committees

Poudre Canyon Group volunteers work on a wide variety of issues that are important to the people and environment of Northern Colorado. The Conservation Committee is the umbrella committee for most conservation issues. In some cases, subcommittees have been formed to address specific issues and campaigns, such as fracking, zero waste, and transportation. These subcommittees usually meet on an as-needed basis. See the Calendar for times and locations.

See below for the latest news on the following PCG issues and campaigns:

Fracking: The PCG has been educating the public and elected officials and is working with other organizations to stop fracking in communities in Northern Colorado. A variety of efforts are underway to enact moratoria in Fort Collins, Loveland and other towns. The Sierra Club has endorsed proposed ballot initiatives in Fort Collins and Loveland. To find out how you can help, contact Will Walters or Lauren Swain.
