Since its founding in 1912, the Colorado Mountain Club has been an unwavering advocate for the protection of Colorado's wild, remote, and quiet places. The CMC was instrumental in landmark achievements such as the designation of Rocky Mountain National Park, Dinosaur National Monument, and the passage of the Wilderness Act. Today, the CMC continues this tradition by working with land management agencies, partner organizations and coalitions to:
* Permanently protect our last remaining roadless areas and wildlife corridors,
* Protect and restore the quiet experience, and
* Protect the ecological integrity of our region by reducing the impacts of recreation on the natural environment.
