Trail Maintenance | Habitat Restoration | Resource Conservation


When it comes to Conservation, CMC is committed to on-the-ground protection and improvement of Public Lands throughout the state. The 2016 Stewardship Team worked across Colorado for 20 weeks to assist the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Managment maintain trails and restore natural resource areas. The team also hosted eleven volunteer events and partnered with numerous non-profits including the Continental Divide Trail Coalition, Outward Bound, Colorado Youth Corps, and Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado. Additionally, over 80 conservation enthusiasts volunteered more than 420 hours of their time working with the Stewardship Team. Their hard work resulted in:

  • 65,156 square feet of degraded habitat restored

  • 52 miles of system routes inventoried

  • 123,645 feet of corridor cleared

  • 3,059 feet of current trail maintained

  • 94 erosion control features installed

  • 1,730 feet of fencing installed to protect wildlife habitat

  • 214 downed trees removed from the trail, along with a variety of other accomplishments.
