CMC is partnering with Trout Unlimited to host this unique project in the beautiful San Luis Valley!  Enjoy incredible views of Southern Colorado while helping to protect sensitive riparian habitats along Jim Creek.


Group transportation will depart CMC office Golden Friday afternoon at 1pm and travel to La Jara Reservoir in the San Luis Valley.  Local participants may join the group Friday evening or Saturday morning at 8:30am.  Project work will take place Saturday and Sunday along Jim Creek to protect sensitive riparian areas.  Work will include pounding T-posts, stringing barbed wire, Clipping the fence to posts, installing fence stays, etc.  

After-work activities are hiking and mountain biking and there is good fishing in 3 small creeks within a mile or two of camp.  


CMC will provide all food, group gear and project leadership.  Group should be prepared for possible inclement weather (cold, snow), and hunters may be present in the area (blaze orange is encouraged for non-work excursions).
