Steve Bonowski, Conservation Organizer/Coordinator for the Denver Group



Greetings and welcome to the June 7, summer, quarterly meeting of the CMC-Denver Group Conservation Program. 

Our topic is "Continuing Access Issues on the 14ers." The topic is especially timely considering the May closure of public access to Mounts Lincoln, Democrat, Bross. The pending sale of the mining claims on Mount Sherman may predict additional access challenges. To address these access issues, we will have a four person panel, led & moderated by Julie Mach, CMC's Conservation Director. Topics and speakers as follows:

Julie, an in depth overview of current status on the four Park County 14ers.

Cara Doyle, Alma, Executive Director of the Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative. Cara will address the fiscal/economic impact of 14ers on rural Colorado communities. She also has historical perspectives for past negotiations regarding L/B/D.

Lessons from past access efforts:

Steve Johnson, Telluride, attorney-at-law and past board member of the Access Fund. Steve will cover Wilson Peak access issues from the late 2000s.

Steve Bonowski, Lakewood, longtime statewide Conservation member activist for CMC. Steve will cover past efforts in the San Luis Valley: westside access to the Crestones & Kit Carson in late 2000s & early 2010s, Culebra Peak in the early 2000s.

We will also have feature additional statewide conservation updates from Julie, and Denver Group updates from local member activists.



This meeting will be recorded in order to allow those unable to attend "in person" to view it later. 


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
