Short Description of Activity
Broadband meeting with speakers: Kristina Schenck, Lead Wilderness Ranger, Columbine RD and David Taft, Conservation Director, SJMA. Kristina mentioned that a grant did come through to clear the Elk Creek Trail of avalanche debris estimated to be 50 feet deep in places and to build treat where needed. Some explosives will likely be used.
Kristina told about e-registration at some boxes at Weminuche trailheads this summer and opportunities for volunteers to help count people as they enter to see how the registration compliance is. David told of SJMA Ambassadors who will greet people at trailheads and on trails to convey Leave No Trace and ask people to treat the area well. Volunteers can sign up to accompany Ambassadors on www.sjma.org website.
