A Legacy of Conservation

From our beginning, the Colorado Mountain Club has worked to create, define and protect the Colorado experience. In 1912, charter members Enos Mills and James Grafton Rogers worked tirelessly to designate the Estes Park Valley and beyond as Rocky Mountain National Park. Their success in 1915 marked the beginning of CMC's conservation legacy and changed millions of lives. This is the very heart of the Club – a combination of experience, belief, and action.

Today, CMC Conservation continues this tradition by promoting sustainable recreation, protecting wild lands, creating and maintaining access to Colorado’s best places for recreation, and engaging in stewardship in the places that hold so much meaning for members.

Our work is unique in that it is bi-partisan, specific to Colorado, and leverages advocacy with results on the ground.  Follow the links below to learn what we are planning for 2016 and beyond.

 



Help us amplify our voice with CongressWeb:

We need to raise $1,500 for a new online advocacy tool to help us streamline Action Alerts, target policy makers, and engage grassroots advocates across the state!
