FEATURED GROUP: The Pikes Peak Group
The Pikes Peak Group (PPG) is a very active group in the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter. The PPG includes El Paso, Lincoln, Cheyenne, Kit Carson, Elbert, and Teller Counties, as well as part of Park County. The PPG has five main focus areas for conservation work: Mining, Pikes Peak Highway, Recycling, Urban Issues, and Wilderness. Each committee is led by an Executive Committee (ExCom) member who serves as the group’s liaison to their community partners.
The PPG also has an active outings program that is open to all – many of
their hikes are to proposed wilderness areas that the group is actively
trying to protect. The PPG strives to have an educational component to
each hike. This educational component might enlist participants to
help map a roadless area, for example.
