Senator Mark Udall Visits Rocky Mountain Youth Corps

Article appears on Rocky Mountain Youth Corps' Facebook page.

Senator Mark Udall visited a RMYC crew working with Colorado Fourteeners Initiative on Mt. Bierstadt, a 14,000 foot peak near Georgetown, CO. Senator Udall helped on the project site and facilitated a discussion about the value of Wilderness Areas. The Wilderness Society, Conservation Colorado, the USFS, and the Colorado Youth Corps Association joined in the discussion about Wilderness at the trailhead--celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Coincidentally, our RCC crew happened to be at the trailhead after hiking the peak early that morning and were able to participate in the event--bringing the youth perspective into the discussion!
