  • RSVP at https://telluridemountainclub.networkforgood.com/events/23349-tmtc-s-virtual-public-trust-film-screening
  • Join TMtC for a virtual screening of Public Trust film! This film explores how our public lands are facing unprecedented threats from extractive industries. Part love letter, part political exposé, PUBLIC TRUST investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through the examination of three beloved public lands that are particularly at risk—a national monument in the Utah desert, a mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—and makes a case for their continued protection.
  • RSVP for this free event to receive the screening room URL and password. RSVP here.

    Hello!
    I’m currently residing in telluride and have worked for the gondola the past two seasons. I would love to volunteer for some trail maintenance work, but how would I sign up? Please let me know, I love to pay it forward through trail work and will work hard to get things done.
    Thank you!
