BOEC to host Quandary trail-building project

BRECKENRIDGE – The Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center will sponsor a trail-building and maintenance project on Quandary Peak in June.

The local nonprofit has adopted the 14,265-foot mountain under the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative (CFI) and plans to work on the trail there June 28-29.

For more information, call the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center at (970) 453-5633.

Additionally, the CFI will hold a fundraiser May 1, featuring a “Fourteeners Near and Far” presentation, climbing stories from various Western states and a silent auction of gear and other merchandise. The event will be held from 6-9 p.m. in the American Mountaineering Center at 710 Tenth St. in Golden. Tickets are $10; all proceeds benefit CFI’s preservation programs.

The Golden-based nonprofit is dedicated to the preservation of the natural integrity of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks.
