Local Impact Stories

Planetary impact is hard to see in real time. Local impact is much easier to illustrate. The positive efforts at a community level can lead to meaningful global change. Here is one example of Conserve at work in the Colorado community.

Conserve partnered with Volunteers of Colorado as a Season Long Sponsor. Through Colorado’s Circle K Conserve fill-ups we were able to sponsor 823 volunteers as stewards in Colorado for many projects throughout the state. They completed 56 outdoor projects in 36 areas of Colorado. The results: in a tough year the Volunteers of Colorado team, with sponsors support, was able to make a difference at the local level and protect many trail systems from erosion, repair fencing, mitigate invasive weeds, keep 5.5 acres of forests thriving and restore 20 acres that had been burned by the Elephant Butte Fire.
