Conservation Committee

Who We Are

The Indian Peaks Group Conservation Committee consists of interested generalists and of subcommittees of specialists who work on particular issues of importance to the Indian Peaks Group in Boulder County. Please see the individual subcommittee descriptions below. The Conservation Committee’s purpose is to examine pressing conservation issues and recommend courses of action by the Executive Committee, the IPG’s governing body.

When and Where Does it Meet?

The Conservation Committee normally meets on the first Wednesday of every other month. Click here for more details about the meetings.
