  1. Hello,

    I am inquiring about how to develop a project with your group. I work for the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests as the archaeologist for the Grand Valley and Paonia Ranger Districts. I have a historic cow camp cabin and ranger station that need some rehabilitation and I am exploring potential options for volunteers etc. Any information regarding your trails program would be great.

    Thank you,

    Catie Freels
