Youth Corps Complete Work at Sacramento Creek Ranch

MALT received a generous grant through Great Outdoors Colorado – GOCO and the Colorado Youth Corps Association to support funding for outdoor recreation, stewardship and restoration projects at MALT’s property at Sacramento Creek Ranch near Fairplay. This collaborative project was recently completed by conservation service corps members. The goal of these funds is to employ youth and young adults (ages 14-25) throughout the state on critical outdoor recreation and natural resource stewardship projects using the network of conservation service corps accredited by Colorado Youth Corps Association.

Youth crews and chainsaw crew members from the Southwest Conservation Corps spent two weeks in July camping and working at Sacramento Creek Ranch. They completed a number of stewardship and trail projects on the property including removing and rebuilding beaver dams near the property’s bridge, weeding and bagging invasive weeds on the trail corridor and clearing downed and hazardous trees.

Grateful thanks to our generous funders and partners on this project:
Great Outdoors Colorado, Colorado Youth Corps Association, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, South Park National Heritage Area, The Summit Foundation, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund.
