The Conservation Committee serves to advocate for the sustained natural beauty and access to our hiking areas. The committee will:
- Inform Club members of issues that may affect the hiking experience in the Club’s day-hiking area.
- 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.
The CMC from time-to-time takes positions on issues related to forest conservation. See these at CMC Positions, Letters and Comments
We also collaborate with other conservation-minded organizations of issues of mutual interest. Check them out at Conservation Partners
