Indian Peaks Wilderness Alliance (IPWA)
This page offers up-to-date information on IPWA's actions in response to the spread of COVID-19 (aka: the Coronavirus).
The safety of our community is our top priority, and we are committed to doing our part to limit the spread of the virus.
Updated: July 1, 2020
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the IPWA board cancelled the 2020 new volunteer program, as well as group activities including Trail Maintenance Crews, Wilderness Information Specialist (WIS) office staffing, and Trailhead Host Days.
For Returning Volunteers: As always, and especially in the context of COVID-19, volunteering is 100% optional. There is NO pressure for you to volunteer this summer, as your health and safety come first. We respect whichever choice you make. Volunteers will receive additional information via email.
Please note: volunteering can be suspended at any time if pandemic conditions worsen. The U.S. Forest Service Boulder Ranger District (BRD), Boulder County Health Department and IPWA will be monitoring conditions continuously as we go forward. To see the latest information about COVID-19, visit Colorado's COVID-19 Response Page and visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Coronavirus Page.

Please read the Leave No Trace Recommendations for Getting Outside during COVID-19.

Recreate responsibly by complying with local, state and federal regulations and maintaining social distancing.
