Funded by Great Outdoors Colorado in collaboration with the Upper Gunnison Water Conservancy District, youth corps crews from Western Colorado Conservation Corps spent two weeks in 2018 assisting in a collaborative, large-scale wet meadow restoration that improved habitat for the listed Gunnison Sage-Grouse.
Featured Corps Projects
In 2018 the Bureau of Land Management Gunnison Field Office and Colorado BLM Engineering worked to complete a campground redesign at Oh Be Joyful Campground near Crested Butte, Colorado. In September a Western Colorado Conservation Corps crew spent two weeks completing campsite delineation work on 26 individual campsites and one group campsite.
In 2014, a Rocky Mountain Youth Corps’ (RMYC) trail crew completed four weeks of trail maintenance work on the North Inlet Trail, a stretch of woods through the southwestern portion of Rocky Mountain National Park. The work was concentrated within the first few miles of trail from Grand Lake, Colorado.
In 2014, Southwest Conservation Corps spent two weeks of work at Eleven Mile State Park completing a fence maintenance project. The project required that the entire 30-mile perimeter, 4-strand, barbed-wire fence line of Eleven Mile State Park be checked for breaks and repaired wherever the breaks or damage occurred.
