Join us for a weekend of hard work, education and fun!  CMC will be hosting a stewardship project followed by a FREE navigation course from Wilderness Trekking School Instructor Joe Griffith.


Saturday - CMC will partner with the BLM to host a volunteer stewardship event at the Collegiate Peaks Overlook in Buena Vista to re-route trails and restore native habitats. Projects suitable for ages 14+, no experience required.

Sunday - Brush up on your navigation skills with this FREE course through the Wilderness Trekking School.  Learn the basics of mapping and topography; take bearings with compass and GPS devices (provided, or bring your own to practice!); and learn how to navigate on a budget with smartphone apps and free USGS topo maps.  Stewardship Volunteers get priority registration and a free lunch on Sunday.


CMC will provide food and overnight camping for Stewardship Volunteers.  Project and Navigation Course Open to the public.


Hope to see you there!

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
