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.

Guffey Gorge Project

RMFI is partnering with the Bureau of Land Management, Royal Gorge Field Office, to improve the access trail to Guffey Gorge, a.k.a. Paradise Cove! The cove is a popular day-use recreation area located approximately 12 miles away from the town of Guffey, Colorado offering visitors opportunities to swim, hike, scramble, or just relax and enjoy the views. The weekend of September 21-22, 2019, we are hosting a community work weekend that will focus on technical projects such as installing buck and rail fencing, rock steps, and check dams. Join us for one or both days! Those spending the full weekend on the project with us will be treated to group camping access and camp meals!
