CMC will partner with the Pike National Forest to begin work on the Badger Flats Habitat Restoration Project.  This beautiful area, less than 50 miles from Colorado Springs, has been growing in popularity but an extensive network of user-created routes is destroying native vegetation and fragmenting local wildlife habitat.  CMC is working closely with the Forest Service to mitigate recreational impacts and provide safe, sustainable access for users and the surrounding natural resources.  Join us for a series of stewardship events this summer to prevent further damage to these critical habitat areas.


Volunteer crews will help address wildlife habitat degradation by inventorying non-system roads and trails and rehabilitating impacted areas.   Work is suitable for all abilities and will include GPSing, photographing resource damage, installing signs, constructing natural barriers & fences, re-seeding and transplanting vegetation.


Project work will take place from 9am - 5pm Saturday and 8am - 4pm Sunday.  Camping is available and food will be provided by CMC.   Volunteers may participate one or both days (please indicate below).  Transport/carpooling may be available from Denver/CO Springs.


CMC will be hosting a series of volunteer events at Badger Flats this summer/fall.  Check out the full stewardship calendar for more dates
