Rotary Conifer Evening Club Meetings
Mornings are difficult for some of us, that is why we have an evening club. Please join us at 5:30 PM every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at St. Laurence Episcopal Church, 26812 Barkley Rd. in Conifer. We have the same interests and ambitions as the morning club, a group that endeavors to help people in our local mountain community and around the world.

Conifer Interact Students Need Help for Kenya
Donate Here to Support the Conifer Interact Kenya Service Project:
 
 
Conifer Interact Club is raising money to support their international service project, Sasa Harambee. Sasa Harambee is a nonprofit organization that works hand-in-hand with the residents of Sigomere Ward (in rural, Western Kenya) to build local community capacity in multiple sectors. By stimulating, attracting and retaining both human and capital investment, Sasa Harambee, with the community, creates an environment that is vibrant and sustains all its members. Conifer High School Interact is working hand-in-hand with Sasa Harambee to help build a playground for disabled children in a rural village in Kenya, which will be completed in the summer of 2018.

Program:
Mountain Area Land Trust:  Linda Brawler and Lynn Caligiuri
 
MALT is conserving 22,221 acres in public and private projects.  It is a 501c3, not-for-profit. They are accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.  Their mission is to save natural areas, wildlife habitat, streams and rivers, working ranches and historic lands.
 
To accomplish their mission they partner with other organizations.  Their programs:  voluntary land agreements, land stewardship, outreach, and education. Their goals align closely with the results of last year's Conifer Area Council Community Survey.  It identified that residents want to preserve the natural environment.  They have 39 parcels in our local area between Red Rocks and Kenosha Pass.
 
Their landowner agreement requires that the landowner permanently give up development rights, but they retain ownership, get tax credits and the land is protected forever.
 
The public benefits are numerous.  Some projects in our area are currently the Elk and Noble Meadow, Beaver Brook watershed and Floyd Hill Open Space and Pennsylvania Mountain.  Their area of responsibility encompases 4,290 square-miles of Clear Creek, Park, Gilpin, Teller and the mountain areas of Boulder and Jefferson Counties.  They monitor and inspect properties annually to determine that the areas under MALT are maintained as required by the Trust.  
 
Their outreach and education programs include:  recreation, trail building, interpretive hikes.  This includes sponsoring children field trips from the Denver urban area.  They are partnering with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado to do trail building, currently there is a project in the new Floyd Hill open space.  There are several projects taking place on Pennsylvania Mountain west of Fairplay.
 
MALT is having a large fund-raiser event on July 14, 6-10pm, at Alderfer/Three Sisters Park.  Their funding comes from individuals, businesses, grants and family foundations.
