Kirkwood Mountain Resort & The National Forest Foundation

Over the past four years, Kirkwood Mountain Resort has partnered with the National Forest Foundation to work to improve wildlife habitat, treat invasive weeds, restore watersheds, and enhance recreation opportunities on the Eldorado National Forest.  With $1 from each paid night going towards this cause, guests at Kirkwood have contributed over $30,000, which the National Forest Foundation has leveraged with over $15,000. Working together, these investments have gone a long way to improve the Eldorado National Forest.  Find out more about this initiative here.
