Cordillera Canine Classic
The Colorado Mountain Club and U.S. Forest Service are seeking volunteers to help restore the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness on Aug. 16 and 17. Volunteers will help preserve one of the most popular wilderness areas in the state by rehabilitating camping areas in sensitive riparian habitats along the Four Pass Loop trail.
The group will enjoy a backpacking trip in the Maroon Bells while helping the White River National Forest protect this incredible natural resource. Colorado Mountain College will provide food, group camping gear and leadership. No experience is necessary, but participants should be prepared to backpack 3.5 miles to the site.
Only eight spaces are available. Register at http://www.cmc.org/Calendar/Event Details.aspx?ID=26674 or email steward firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. This project is supported by funding from the National Forest Foundation.
While it will be postmaster Elizabeth Turner’s first busy season in Avon, it’s far from her first holiday-shipping crunch.
