Projects:

  • Hiking
  • Adopt-A-Trail
  • Healthy lands monitoring
  • Service projects
  • Attending meetings
  • Writing letters
  • Collaborating with local and regional land management agencies and other conservation groups

We are forming activity and issue-related groups. Please contact us if you are interested in participating in the following:

  • Book Club: Focusing on wild land-related fiction and non-fiction. Meet 3-4 times a year.
  • Hiking Group: Some fixed dates, some ad hoc. Hikes are normally no more than an hour's drive, 3–6 miles, no more than 1000–1500 elevation gain.
  • Recreational Impacts: We are expecting increasing pressure to expand recreational opportunities on public lands, including more off-road vehicle routes and mountain biking trails. We're looking for people interested in tracking proposals and weighing in on behalf of the "quiet users".

Broadlights:

At the Mile High Broadband annual meeting on March 15, we heard about the National Park Service Climate Change Response Program. Our speaker, Dr. Leigh Welling, highlighted a wealth of information that is available online, including the following useful links:
