Aspen TREE

Build a Yurt for Kids Programs

2017-ROFO-Fund-Aspen-TREE

A yurt for our kids programs will allow us to much more effectively host schools year round as well as expand our youth programming at Cozy Point. A brand new in the box yurt has already been donated (a $15K value!), and we estimate the permit, deck, and construction fees to come in somewhere around $8-10K, so a $3K grant would make a huge impact on helping us achieve our goal!

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers

Lower Plunge/Sunnyside Trail Volunteer Reroute

2017-ROFO-Fund-Roaring-Fork-Outdoor-Volunteers

Currently the lower portion of this popular trail in the beautiful Hunter Creek Valley near Aspen Colorado, traverses a wet meadow. The trail through the meadow cannot be properly drained or maintained and there is resource damage due to trail braiding. (Trail braiding is caused by users creating parallel trails when the trail gets deep and muddy). RFOV and our volunteers will work to reroute both forks of the very bottom of the Lower Plunge Trail (officially Sunnyside) out of the wet meadow onto dry terrain. We will close and restore the old sections of trail. The goal – a sustainable trail which creates a better experience for all trail users and protects our resources. Funds received will help with project planning, recruiting and coordinating volunteers, and food & beverage at the end of each evening project.

Build a Children’s Garden at Rock Bottom Ranch

2017-ROFO-Fund-ACES

A new Children’s Garden at Rock Bottom Ranch will be a place for children and families to explore the origins of food, learn science, and inspire a lifelong connection with nature through hands­-on experiences and play. A garden will allow kids to use their imagination and sense of wonder to create their own connections with plants, water, science, and healthy food. Take this opportunity to make a positive and meaningful ecological, educational, health, and social benefit in the Roaring Fork Valley.
