Boulder Backyard Collective

The Conservation Alliance hosted its third annual Boulder Backyard Collective in Colorado on Friday, August 26th.  In partnership with the Colorado Mountain Club, Eldorado Canyon State Park, and Conservation Alliance member companies, the Backyard Collective volunteers worked tirelessly on trail maintenance and habitat restoration in Eldorado Canyon State Park.

More than 100 volunteers came out for the day. Not only did they work hard but they celebrated their efforts by enjoying a catered lunch from Whole Foods and refreshments generously donated by  New Belgium brewing company, also a sponsor of the event. The volunteers wrapped the day by participating in the Grantee Fair, where Colorado Mountain Club, Colorado Environmental Coalition, and The Access Fund shared additional ways these volunteers could support local environmental efforts.

The Conservation Alliance would like to thank its sponsoring companies including: Osprey Packs, American Recreation Products, Inc., Backpacker's Pantry, Outdoor Industry Association, Leisure Trends Group, La Sportiva, SCARPA,  and Nite Ize. A variety of companies including Verde PR & Consulting, Great Plain Mountain Stuff, Sea to Summit, IMBA and Burt's Bees also sent volunteers to join the cleanup effort.

Thanks to everyone for a great day!!!
