We are the nonprofit stewards of public land in Southern Colorado. Each year we complete 550+ workdays, actively engage over 2,000 community volunteers, oversee nearly 100 youth conservation corps members, and employ our own professional stewardship crews to complete highly impactful trail and restoration projects in public parks, open spaces, national forests, and wilderness areas.
With 24 million annual visitors to the Pikes Peak Region and a public health crisis that has illuminated how important parks and natural areas are for physical, mental, and emotional well-being, RMFI’s boots-on-the-ground stewardship work has never been more important for ensuring sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities, protected wildlife habitat, and healthy forests and ecosystems.
RMFI is in need of a new office and warehouse location on the Westside and would love to upgrade our current vehicle fleet! Maintaining tools and equipment is always a priority.
RMFI celebrated 40 years of stewardship in 2021! Over the past 4 decades, RMFI has engaged close to 40,000 volunteers and built/maintained nearly 400 miles of trail!
“What a fantastic and necessary organization! I recently volunteered with RMFI and can’t wait to dig in and help again. Thanks for all that you do!” — Colleen C., 2022 RMFI Volunteer
