May 19
2nd Annual Colorado Public Lands Day Celebration

Celebrate the second annual Colorado Public Lands Day with a day of stewardship and recreation in Red Rock Canyon Open Space!

Colorado is the first state in the nation to designate its own state holiday to recognize the state’s public lands. Come celebrate with a day of giving back and enjoying the recreational opportunities of one of our treasured local public open spaces!

The morning stewardship project will focus on restoration of an unsustainable, non-designated trail between the Mesa Trail and Intemann Trail which parallels the designated Section 16 connector trail. Additional restoration tasks, trail repairs and maintenance in this area may also be included if time and group size allow.

After work, enjoy lunch courtesy of Mad Crane Marketing, and then go play! Recreation opportunities include a guided educational 3rd Saturday Adventure hike with UpaDowna, guided and social rock climbing with the Pikes Peak Climbers Alliance (loaner gear is available if needed and beginners are welcome), and social group bike riding (bring your own gear).

After all that, head down to the after-party celebration with prize drawings and drink specials at Fossil Craft Beer Company!

Minimum age for the stewardship project is 16, or 13 with an accompanying parent or guardian volunteer.

Pre-registration at www.rmfi.org is required so that they can plan for staffing, tools, and food quantities. 


Free. Pre-registration required online.
