> A Message from ColoradoBoulevard.net:
Effective immediately, we will be tapering down our coverage of closures and concentrate more on uplifting local stories and ways to enrich our well-being, while navigating these difficult times with dignity and civility. We will also up our coverage of the latest science and technology breakthroughs in the fight to conquer COVID-19, while adding nutrition and practical information.
In times like these, we are reminded of the priceless gift that we have in our natural wild surroundings.

John Howell, CEO of the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy, reminds us of the beauty surrounding us in a letter (and a video) to the community:
In times like these, I am reminded of the priceless gift that we have in our natural wild surroundings. Even though many of us are inside, social distancing or working from home, we can take a moment to open a window and hear the birds sing, or feel this cool rainy breeze blowing down from the mountains. It helps.
In that spirit, we’ve assembled a collection of some of our favorite wildlife videos for you – we hope that it brings you a smile, a small moment of peace, or even just a much-needed distraction. Included are a couple videos of Nikita and her cubs with P41 – a reminder of how important our work is.
Take a break with our wild neighbors in the mountains:
In my years with AFC, one thing I have seen proven again and again is the tremendous power this community has to do unstoppable good. We will get through this together, and we will continue our work, caring for the natural world around us, and for one another.
