Palmer Park Community Stewardship Day

Palmer Park Community Stewardship Day

Saturday, June 15, 2024
8:30 AM to 2:30 PM
Moderately Strenuous
RMFI will be working on the west side of the park, building a reroute of a connector trail between Templeton and Palmer Point trails! There will be a short hike of around .75 miles to the worksite from the closest parking lot.

This is a community stewardship opportunity, where we welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and communities. Feel free to come with friends and/or family members! For this workday due the tasks we ask that all volunteers be 16 years of age and older.

Land Acknowledgment

This is a community stewardship day, which we acknowledge takes place on the traditional unceded territory of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), Cheyenne, and Jicarilla Apache Nations*. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced occupation of their territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse indigenous people connected to this land on which our stewardship days take place.  

Meeting location:

Please park and meet RMFI staff at the stables parking lot here: MAP LINK. To ensure you arrive at the correct trailhead parking lot we do ask that you use the link provided.

Online registration will close Friday, June 14th at noon. If you are able, please register for this stewardship day online; however, we will provide paper copies of the registration form on-site. We do ask that all volunteers be available for the entire workday, if you need any other accommodations please contact us prior to registering.

Activity: This City of Colorado Springs Parks property is popular with hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and equestrians. For this project, the RMFI crew will be working on rerouting a connector trail that went through a poor drainage area connecting the Templeton and Palmer Point trails on the west side of the park. Project tasks may include decompacting hardened soils, and moving materials such as rock and dirt, building the new connector trail at the guidance of RMFI staff. This is moderately strenuous work using tools in the outdoors. Be prepared for a rewarding day of trail work! If you have concerns about accessibility on this stewardship day, please reach out to us, or for your reference please use our Trail Terminology Guide to learn more about this activity.
