Location

COME JOIN OUR FIRST EVER STEWARDSHIP TEAM as they represent the CMC while partnering with the Pike National Forest to continue YEAR TWO of 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 installing signs, constructing natural barriers & fences, re-seeding, inventorying and closing non-system roads and trails.

 

DELICIOUS FOOD IS PROVIDED!

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 and closing non-system roads and trails.  Work is suitable for all abilities and will include GPSing, photographing resource damage, installing signs, constructing natural barriers & fences, re-seeding and transplanting vegetation.
