Join RMFI, Friends of Red Rock Canyon, UpaDowna, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates, Pikes Peak Climbers Alliance, and the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services Department for a day of stewardship and recreation to celebrate the first annual COLORADO PUBLIC LANDS DAY! Colorado is the first state in the nation to designate our own state holiday to recognize our public lands. Come celebrate one of our many local treasured public open spaces with a day of giving back and enjoying the recreational opportunities of Red Rock Canyon Open Space. 

Plan for a day of fun with a morning spent working on a trail improvement project followed by lunch and a variety of recreational opportunities to choose from and an after party hosted by Fossil Craft Beer Company!
