Mountain Manners partners with our sponsoring organization, Coldharbour Institute in Gunnison, to promote exemplary land management practices. We are a team of outdoor enthusiasts who want to help others lessen their impacts on trails and in the backcountry.
Our mission is to help trail and backcountry users understand how they can be good outdoor stewards and we do it by being friendly and respectful.
The Mountain Manners Stewardship Program educates visitors to the Gunnison Valley about environmental stewardship and responsible outdoor etiquette. Our volunteer team of "Peak Protectors" spends time at trailheads and on trails sharing good info and good vibes with our visitors.
We have four goals for Summer 2018:
On Wednesday, June 27, from 6-8 pm at Sunset Hall in CB South (349 Teocalli Road), we're holding a Mountain Manners Kick-Off Meeting to say THANK YOU for all you did last year, reviewing the Peak Protectors program and your role, handing out supplies, discussing the buddy system, welcoming newcomers, and reviewing the reporting process. Oh, and of course we will have snacks and beverages! Chocolate...wine...beer? You bet!
Please RSVP by Tuesday, June 26, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
