Rocky Mountain Conservancy

Rocky Mountain Conservancy

Rocky Mountain National Park

The Rocky Mountain Conservancy has supported research, conservation, and educational programs for Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) through philanthropy since 1931.

The Conservancy supports the mission of Rocky Mountain National Park and other public lands by providing educational opportunities and publications for the public and raising funds for stewardship and educational projects within Rocky.

The Conservancy has helped the park rebuild trails, acquire land within and adjoining the park for conservation and protection, and restore historic buildings. In 2022, the Conservancy spent over $2 million in support of RMNP through numerous initiatives including:

Field Institute

One of the Conservancy’s signature programs is its renowned Field Institute.  Recognized subject matter experts lead field-based, hands-on learning experiences in Rocky Mountain National Park. A wide range of topics are available, including wildflowers, mammals, birds, cultural history, outdoor skills, photography, painting, and writing. A new series called Bettie Courses has been developed to encourage women and those who identify as female to explore and learn skills necessary to thrive in the backcountry. Visitors who believe in “collecting experiences, not things” can explore course offerings and register at RMConservancy.org.

Conservation Corps

The Rocky Mountain Conservancy-Conservation Corps celebrates its 20th anniversary this summer. The Conservancy raises funds through grants and donations to hire more than 50 young adults who serve, learn, and live in Rocky and the surrounding Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest through a summer-long Americorps opportunity. These crew members support trail construction and maintenance, habitat restoration, historic preservation, and visitor-use site improvements. Over the course of their summer service, they earn a living allowance, gain valuable professional skills, learn about public land management, and develop a conservation ethic. 

Corps members continue to make significant contributions to reopening trails and backcountry campsites destroyed in the historic 2020 Cameron Peak and East Troublesome wildfires, which impacted about 30,000 acres within the park. Other planned projects for the summer of 2023 include reinforcing additional portions of the popular Longs Peak Trail with natural rock pavers to better withstand the high hiker traffic and reconstructing campsites in the Moraine Park Campground as part of RMNP’s major renovation and utilities upgrade.
