High Country Conservation Center was founded as Summit Recycling Project in 1976 by local activist Tim McClure as an “educational-experimental organization to promote resource conservation and reduce wastefulness.” In the early days, McClure and a couple of volunteers collected bottles, cans and paper from County residents in a station wagon. Over the years, the organization developed the local recycling program into a stable County department and launched new programs in the areas of energy conservation and green building. McClure passed away in a backcountry avalanche in Little French Gulch in 1985.All funds raised from the event support the waste reduction and resource conservation programs of the High Country Conservation Center.
