IndyGive Awards on February 1, 2018, at El Pomar’s Penrose House Garden Pavilion, brought the 75 Pikes Peak region non-profits together to celebrate the bounty from the November-December 2017 year end campaign.

You 147 people, and especially you 47 new donors, are indeed awesome. Your gifts go a long way to saving wild nature in central Colorado – our deepest thanks.
Patagonia Denver awarded Wild Connections a grant for $10,000 for Packer Gulch and Rock Creek restoration projects.
Working with the Forest Service, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, local landowners and workday volunteers are making a difference for deer, elk, moose, greenback cutthroat trout, and keeping Farnum Peak roadless area and Lost Creek Wilderness wild and quiet.
Our thanks to Patagonia for their many years of support for habitat restoration.
Wolcott Family Foundation is sending $4,850 to continue their multi-year contribution toward our work on the BLM Resource Management Planning, Pike-San Isabel National Forest travel management planning, and a full program of backcountry and wilderness hikes.
