About Us
Volunteer moving slab of granite

I've come to Garden of the Gods on an almost weekly basis for the past 3 years and it was fulfilling to finally be able to give back to it, even if just a little. The RMFI team is passionate about the work they do and it definitely gets passed down to the volunteers and keeps them motivated throughout the day as well. The entire team was kind, inclusive, knowledgable, and approachable. Can't wait to volunteer again.

Calling All Backpackers!

On June 15, 16, and 17, we are seeking volunteers to help us pack our summer basecamp into the Willow Lake Basin of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains! Once set up, our trail crews can continue work on the Kit Carson-Challenger Ridge Trail realignment project. This will be great training for backpacking season, and you will doing it for a cause! To boot, this trail and lake up top are gorgeous, a must-do in Colorado. Help us by carrying a load on 1, 2, or all 3 days of our pack-in weekend!
