Trail Maintenance | Habitat Restoration | Resource Conservation

 

2016 welcomed three new resource management professionals to continue the Stewardship program on a statewide level. Their focus was to create a far-reaching presence of CMC's conservation work while making a lasting, positive, and productive relationship between public land agencies, other non-profits, and volunteers. The 2016 Stewardship Team has successfully hosted eleven volunteer events and partnered with other organizations, such as the Continental Divide Trail Coalition, Outward Bound, Colorado Youth Corps, and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado. In total, over 60 conservation enthusiasts volunteered more than 420 hours of their time working with the Stewardship Team. Their hard work resulted in:

  • 65,156 square feet of degraded habitat restored
  • 52 miles of system routes inventoried
  • 123,645 feet of corridor cleared
  • 3,059 feet of current trail maintained
  • 94 erosion control features installed
  • 1,730 feet of fencing installed to protect wildlife habitat
  • 214 downed trees removed from the trail, along with a variety of other accomplishments.
