It’s the mountains that make Colorado the beautiful home that it is to all of us. So why not take some time to learn more about those gorgeous peaks and the fascinating world of mountaineering? Join us for an enriching evening at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado, where you can delve into outdoor exploration and adventure. In this hands-on field trip, Ashley Hanlon, membership manager of the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC), also introduces you to the CMC, a dynamic organization dedicated to promoting outdoor recreation, conservation and education in the breathtaking landscapes of Colorado. Since 1912, the CMC has been a driving force behind fostering a strong sense of community among outdoor enthusiasts while advocating for the preservation of Colorado's pristine wilderness. During your visit, explore the American Alpine Club Library with its treasure trove of literature and resources on mountaineering and outdoor pursuits, as well as the American Mountaineering Museum, which showcases the rich history of mountaineering and exploration in the region. Plus, enjoy some time engaging with staff members who offer valuable insights into the club's activities and lots of practical advice on how you can get involved in mountain adventures. Whether you're a seasoned mountaineer or simply curious about mountains, this evening promises to be both informative and inspiring.

Ashley Hanlon, membership manager of the Colorado Mountain Club in Golden, Colorado, has been an avid mountain adventurer since she can remember. She has worked for many outdoor and recreation-based organizations including Virginia State Parks, Boulder County Parks & Open Space, and Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District.
