Highlights from a few projects in 2020 

 

Thanks to the generosity of contributing Roundup Riders, the Heritage and Trails Foundation has been able to make some important and significant grants for trail work and improvement projects around Colorado.  The foundation receives funding requests from many organizations and many U. S. Forest Districts

This are of the CDT had been hit hard with beetle kill and has deadstand fall every year, making the CDT nearly impassable in areas. 

Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado

Western Slope Conservation Center - Paonia

The Western Slope Conservation Center Volunteers reinforced an upgradient trail edge on the Curecanti Creek Trail, as well as completing a drain and turnpike. 

None of this work would be possible without the significant and generous support from Roundup Riders. Your dedication to the Heritage and Trails Foundation is having a profound and lasting impact on our state, the public trails that benefit Coloradans and tourists alike, and, perhaps most important, the development of our youth. The Heritage and Trails Foundation Board thanks you!
