Loveland Natural Areas Study
In the Nature of Things: Loveland's Natural Areas tells the story of 95 of
the City of Loveland's natural areas and the biological and ecological signifi-cance
of each. The report, conducted as a first step toward a
comprehensive open space plan, sketches a broad overview
of the region's landscapes and how they function
ecologically. Methods are suggested so each citizen ––
whether visitor, homeowner, developer, or official –– can
serve as a steward of natural environment. The study plays
an active role in the city’s ongoing discussions about protecting natural
resources, and it won a Merit Award in the 1993 American Society of Landscape
Architects (Colorado Chapter) competition. ◆
