FOMP would like to spread the word and encourage you to join this memorial event on Saturday, July 30th. Please join the Seifert family as they celebrate the life of their son.

Devin John Seifert Memorial Cleanup and BBQ 2016
Gather at Dirty Woman Park
Start time 9/9:30am – 12:30pm Saturday, July 30th, 2016.
Devin’s family and friends want to invite the community to join them Saturday, July 30th to honor Devin and help perform seedling release and trail trimming in the Monument Preserve. Wear sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and gloves – consider bringing water, bug spray, and a snack. We also recommend eye protection for sun and the occasional bit of flying dirt.  All tools will be provided.
Meet between 9 and 9:30am at Dirty Woman Park.  If you can join later the group will be working the HotShot trail which runs parallel to Mt. Herman Rd just to the East (access is ~ 3/4 mile up Mt Herman Road from Red Rocks intersection, on the left)

The session will go until 12:30 and lunch will be provided at the pavilion at Dirty Woman Park.

Steve Siefert will be the main point of contact for this session.


July 2016 Trail Night

FOMP needs you for this work session!
Wednesday, July 13 at 6:00 PM 

FOMP is pleased to be holding our monthly volunteer trail work session for July 2016!

[Note: We really need volunteers to come out even if it is only once per year. We need new faces to help us maintain our trails – have you been out enjoying the trails this year? Please consider spending at least one evening per year giving back so we can keep the trails open and in great shape! — Thanks!]

After some wild weather the last month, it is time to get out there and work on a few trails sections that need a little TLC! Please join us!

FOMP and USFS provide all necessary tools. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for performing outdoor landscaping type of work. Volunteers should bring leather gloves, a personal water supply, eye protection, sunscreen, and bug repellent. We meet rain or shine unless there is lightning active in the area. In the event that you are joining us late we try to leave a note at the trailhead parking lot or you can call Jon Nordby (719.640.1347) or Chris Tirpak (719.439.8865) to find out where in the Preserve we are working.

We make every effort to accommodate volunteer preferences and abilities at each event. Generally, we perform activities such as water bar building or renovation, trail renovation, maintenance, and trimming, etc. So, pretty much everything from trimming back scrub oak or digging lots of dirt to moving boulders. We assign duties based on interest and capabilities. Kids are welcome to join their parents; however, we do ask that you evaluate whether this is an appropriate activity for your child or not.

Meet at the main trailhead parking lot at the corner of Mt. Herman Rd and Nursery Rd at 6:00PM! (map:

Thanks and we hope to see you out there!
