The Marshall Fire damaged or destroyed over a thousand homes and businesses in Boulder County, when it burned over 6,000 acres of land. In addition to tightly packed urban residences, this geographic region also includes small ranches, backyard horses and livestock, as well as open space and grazing with commercial livestock.
The Colorado Dept. of Agriculture, the USDA's Farm Service Agency, and the Colorado State University Extension Office partnered to bring together a town hall to answer questions for anyone whose agricultural practice or land was impacted by the Marshall Fire.
