Thank You REI for Supporting CMC's Conservation Efforts!

The Colorado Mountain Club would like to thank REI for generously supporting our summer stewardship program. CMC just completed two great projects with the BLM in the Eagle Valley. 

This past weekend 6 CMCers assisted the BLM in mapping the trail system within the Castle Peaks Wilderness Study Area north of Wolcott. Buskwacking aside, everyone had a great time visiting new landscapes and giving back to this great place we have the privilege to call home. 

Earlier this month CMC volunteers helped rehabilitate the Lyons Gulch campground on the Colorado River just north of Dotsero that was overtaken by mudslides last summer. Volunteers restablished trails, dug-out picnic tables and fire rings, and cut back overgrown vegetation. Thanks to the BLM for partnering with us on both projects. Thanks again to REI for making projects like this possible!
