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. Our Stewardship Crews work across Colorado each summer and fall to assist the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Managment maintain trails and restore natural resource areas. The crews also host volunteer events and partner with numerous non-profits to assist in trail design and project managment. In 2019, their hard work resulted in:

  • 45 miles of trail inventoried and maintained

  • 1,513 downed trees removed

  • 400 erosion control features installed & maintained

  • Supervised 9 miles of new trail construction in Salida and Buena Vista
