meet the crew

The Access Fund is thrilled to introduce our new Conservation Team crew for the 2014 tour—Mike Morin and Amanda Peterson..

Mike and Amanda are a husband/wife team who share a passion for stewardship and climbing. A native of Maine, Mike brings experience in trail building and design as well as working with climbers and land managers to build partnerships and complete stewardship projects that protect the environment and improve access to local crags. Amanda is a Coloradan whose love for education and the outdoors led her to work in environmental education. When she’s not working she can be found at local crags, climbing and honing her photography skills. Amanda frequently volunteers her time to build trail at her local climbing areas and enjoys working with youth as a volunteer climbing educator.

The Access Fund is thrilled to bring on such an energetic couple, who are ready to expand on the legacy of sustainable stewardship projects that previous teams started in 2011. In addition to the standard heroic trail and rock work, Mike and Amanda will host training and education seminars at climbing gyms across the country.
