Colorado Springs Regional Parks | Oct. 14-18, 2021
Colorado Springs, CO
Colorado Springs is a rapidly growing city at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains. A recent study of parks, trails and open space in the area labeled the users “ultra users,” due to the frequency at which they visit these spaces. Due to ever increasing use, natural areas in Colorado Springs are experiencing various trail impacts, pet waste/management issues, wildlife impacts, human waste impacts and more. For the Hot Spot activation, the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team will be at Colorado Springs Regional Parks leading a variety of workshops, outreach programs and community events, including opportunities for community involvement.
*Colorado Springs Regional Parks are located on the ancestral lands of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), Cheyenne, Jicarilla Apache and possibly other tribes*
During the Hot Spot activation, the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team led a variety of workshops, outreach programs and community events at Colorado Springs Regional Parks. This included an Intro to Birding Workshop, a “Friends Group and Advocates” Project Morning/Outreach Event, Nature Photography, Stratton Open Space Volunteer Project/Outreach Event, “Get Outside” Evening at Kinship Landing, Leave No Trace for Mountain Biking, Palmer Park Volunteer Event, and Leave No Trace Outreach at Storybook Brewing.
