Yes, the Stay The Trail Ambassador program (Formerly the Colorado Trail Patrol) was recently discontinued.
We want to notify you that the Responsible Recreation Foundation has decided to terminate the Stay The Trail Ambassadors Program due the failure of its 2012-2013 OHV grant application to receive approval for funding. This was an especially hard decision due to the success the program demonstrated last season and our hopes for the 2013 season.
We want to thank you for your time and dedication to the program. Without your help we would not have been made the positive impacts we have seen on the ground from the Stay The Trail Ambassadors Program. This program would have not been effective without such great volunteers. Thank you for participating in the training, for taking the message out on the trails, and for joining us for the trail projects.
Even though the Ambassador program will not be organizing stewardship events this season, we would encourage you to continue to educate other OHV enthusiasts about Stay The Trail and responsible trail use. If you need more materials, please do not hesitate to contact Info@StayTheTrail.org
The Stay The Trail educational program will continue to operate unchanged. Existing Ambassadors are more than welcome to volunteer during outreach events and at trailheads as part of our educational program. We will be integrating your email addresses to a contact newsletter about the Stay The Trail program so you will be kept in the loop about upcoming events.
We cannot express enough gratitude to you, our volunteers. Thank you!
