Hot Spot

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*
