The Environment Foundation — a collaboration with the Aspen Community Foundation and the Aspen Skiing Company Family Fund — is a nonprofit employee organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the regional environment.
It's simple. When we're are not working, we're outside — climbing a mountain, hiking a remote wilderness, kayaking a wild stretch of river, boarding an open bowl, or biking a winding single-track. We realize that our natural environment is being impacted. Through the Environment Foundation we are working to protect habitat, ecosystems, and the biodiversity that we depend upon.
One example: we provided a leading grant to the Trust for Public Land to help protect the stunning "High Elk Corridor," which runs from Aspen to Crested Butte and is in danger of being developed.
