Project Outcomes

Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who came out on Colorado Public Lands Day!

Alongside 31 volunteers the Conservancy and Rocky Mountain National Park celebrated Colorado’s public lands with a litter clean-up across from the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center.

In just two hours, the volunteers collected 51lbs of trash to help protect wildlife, preserve the natural ecosystems, and encourage others to pack out their trash.
