Synergy Story and Programs

Responding to an ever-increasing need for strategic and collaborative restoration planning, Synergy Ecological Restoration became established in 2014 with a mission “To develop enduring restoration solutions for our lands and waters through the creation of diverse public- private partnerships.” Our Board of Directors coalesced in the summer of 2014 to develop this mission and define our goals and programmatic focus. Synergy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and is currently established as a non-profit organization in the state of Colorado. Our clientele include government, non-profit organizations, for profit entities, and private land owners.


Synergy exists to develop sustainable models for three primary focus areas:


Restoration Partnerships:

Facilitate public-private-philanthropic partnerships to provide landscape, watershed, and ecosystem-scale restoration planning, design, and implementation solutions, with a focus on long-term restoration effectiveness.


Restoration Capacity:

Develop highly performing and broadly skilled restoration crews via training and capacity building services to existing volunteer and youth corps groups (i.e., Trout Unlimited, local volunteer groups, local conservation corps, etc.) to carry out ecological restoration.


Restoration Impact:

Improve both the knowledge and efficacy of restoration treatments utilized in the management of rural, wild, and urban landscapes.
