Access Fund National Climbing Management Summit

On March 10 and 11 the Access Fund will host a National Climbing Management Summit in Golden, CO. This conference will provide a forum for land managers from across the country to discuss and share specific climbing management practices that work.

Increasingly, public land agencies implement varying climbing management policies despite similar or identical mandates and management obligations. There exists a need for better communication and understanding between public land managers and the climbing community to avoid management problems, inconsistent regulatory interpretations and enforcement, and to facilitate buy-in by climbers concerning land manger obligations, needs and programs.

A better understanding of effective climbing management policies and improved communication among land managers and the climbing community will work to keep us all climbing.

If you are a land manager and are interested in attending, please email Access Fund Policy Director Jason Keith at jason@accessfund.org.
