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.

"Within Weakness" Film Screening


Join us for the premiere of "Within Weakness", a short mountain film by adventurer, Wesley Trimble. Cerebral palsy hinders Wesley Trimble’s strength and coordination on the right side of his body, but it hasn’t thwarted his goal to climb all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks. Along the way, he discovered great strength within weakness, though tragedy taught him these adventures could cost him everything.
