Jan Robertson was just 17 years old when she joined the CMC.

67 years later, she knows its her turn to invest in our youth education programs to ensure that the next generation has the same opportunities that she did in the CMC. 

Right now, the CMC education department is at capacity. Your gift will directly impact our ability to invest in leaders and provide more opportunities for the youth of Colorado to explore!

Featured CMC Press Book

The Best Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Hikes

by Morgan Sjogren and Michael VerSteeg 

This guidebook covers the original 1.88 million acres of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument designated in 1996 to protect its natural wonders and preserve the area for scientific research. In 2017, the monument was trimmed to 1 million acres, reducing protections around some of the world’s most geologically diverse landscapes. The hikes featured in this book range from family-friendly day hikes to multi-day backpacking trips that will excite the most adventurous of spirits and will educate readers about the importance of protecting public lands, visiting sensitive areas with respect, and considering low-impact recreation as a pillar of multi-use policy for enhanced conservation.

To order a copy, please visit our store or call 303-279-3080.



About Us

Founded in 1912, the CMC exists to serve and educate Coloradans, encouraging them to become respectful and responsible recreators.
