Climbers to Converge on Estes Park, CO this September

The Access Fund will host a national conference for climber-activists from September 11-14, 2003 at the Estes Park Center in Estes Park, Colorado. The event will unite the organization’s national network of regional coordinators with activists from local climber organizations (LCOs) for several days of training, workshops and discussion. Over 100 attendees have been invited to discuss strategies for preserving access, conserving the climbing environment and promoting effective outreach at the grassroots level.

The Summit underscores the Access Fund’s commitment to preserving access by investing in the support, training and promotion of local grassroots activism. The event also provides an excellent forum for volunteer activists from around the country to share the ideas, experience, resources and knowledge necessary to preserve climbing access and protect the natural environment. This will be the fourth such event held by the Access Fund in its 13-year history.

“With so many dedicated volunteers and seasoned activists gathering in one place, the Summit will be a remarkable learning experience,” said Shawn Tierney, Access Fund access and acquisitions director. “I expect all will come away from the weekend with a greater understanding of the crucial role grassroots activism plays in preserving access.”
