Conservation

The Conservation Committee serves to advocate for the sustained natural beauty and access to our hiking areas. The committee will:

  • Encourage Club members to voice their opinions on important issues identified by the Committee.
  • Publicly advocate accepted Club positions on key issues when approved by the CMC Council.
