In Garden Park, north of Cañon City, Dr. Sorenson motivated and coordinated the involvement of 37 private landowners and five agencies, extensively thinning piñon-juniper forests across boundaries, resulting in wildlife habitat and diversity improvements, while also reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfire. Dr. Sorenson and his wife Peggy protected their land with a conservation easement held by San Isabel in 2011.
