SAVE THE DATE: Outdoor Lab Open House
September 19th 2015
Once a year, Windy Peak and Mount Evans Outdoor Labs invite friends and family of Outdoor Lab students to visit their sites and learn more about the whole week long experience.  This is the perfect opportunity for families to meet the staff, take a tour and enjoy some food.  We hope to see you there!

A successful day on the trail!
On July 31st, Outdoor Lab Foundation partnered with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado(VOC) to begin work on a trail reroute at Mount Evans. 

The day started bright and early at Mount Evans, as the principal, David Epp, greeted the VOC staff and over 35 volunteers.  Foundation staff member, Stephanie Ferguson, joined them as they broke out into four groups to begin their work.  

Not only will this trail be safer and easier for the students to enjoy, it will be more sustainable for future use. Completing over 190 hours to the project, these volunteers were able to:
  • Construct 800 feet of new trail
  • Close 400 feet of the old trail
  • Install 4 check dams
  • Install 2 climbing turns

We can't wait to see what is completed after our next trail building day with VOC on August 20th! Look below for more details.
