Natural Resources and Climate Resilience 

The San Miguel County Natural Resources and Climate Resilience (NRCR) Department supports the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and County departments working to protect and enhance environmental quality and stewardship of lands, waters and natural resources in San Miguel County.  The department acts as a liaison to state and federal agencies and assists the BOCC in providing relevant and timely feedback and comments on a broad array of state and federal legislative and environmental planning and rule-making processes.  For federal planning and National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) processes, the Department coordinates the County’s activities and responsibilities as a Cooperating Agency. 

Natural Resources provides project management for special projects and initiatives that further the mission of the County and goals of the BOCC, and performs technical support, research and policy analysis services to County Departments on request. NRCR  coordinates and implements the county organization’s Climate Action planning efforts for energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction, including the San Miguel and Ouray County's Climate Action Plan, a member of the Sneffles Energy Board and Watts Up! Initiative and SolSmart recognition.  

NRCR responds to citizen concerns and questions; please email or submit a comment  regarding natural resources and climate resilience for appropriate action.
