Fremont Adventure Recreation strives to organize and support numerous events throughout the community. Additionally, we support a Scholarship, trash clean-ups, trail building projects.
Since 2015, FAR has awarded scholarships to graduating seniors at Cañon City High School. Cañon City High School graduating seniors are eligible to apply only if they have VOLUNTEERED in a FAR event during the last three years.
Recipients will be chosen based upon their involvement and / or participation in FAR-sponsored events, the quality of their essay submission, and their stated future plan. Amounts range from $250-$500 each. Financial need is also a consideration. Past Winners:
We are proud to have worked with the City of Cañon City and CU's Masters of the Environment (MENV) Program to create the region's first-ever economic impact report aligned with outdoor recreation amenities.
You can download the report here and read more about the positive impacts of trial systems on the local economy. We are excited to share this information with our community as we look to the future. Decisions to fund trails, create infrastructure, continue planning, and sustain development should be made with good data, and we are grateful to the CU students who have provided us with this!
We participate in a number of stewardship initiatives and conferences. We are proud Leave No Trace members and do our best to promote positive trail practices. We work to include the Seven Principles in our Adventure Kids Series, in our Adventure Guide, and in all of the publications / social media posts that we're a part of.
With the help of the Fremont County Department of Transportation, FAR has adopted a 2 mile stretch of Red Canyon Road. We gather trash twice a year, usually April and October. Please join us for our next outing and help to keep Red Canyon Road beautiful. Follow us on Facebook to stay current with upcoming dates.
