Designing Demonstration Projects for Maximum Impact

Peer Calls


Pilot and demonstration projects are often implemented to test or showcase an idea’s potential for success. In SMPs, they can be used to try out a new or innovative project idea to garner enthusiasm or community support for the SMPs. Participants discussed approaches to pilot and demonstration projects resulting from the Rio Grande, Conejos, Saguache Creek SMPs, and how their leadership has used that momentum to build additional projects.

Presentations were heard from:


Daniel Boyes and Emma Reesor, Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project
