Access Fund and Patagonia present ‘Solid Protection’ event to empower rock climbers as conservationists

By Mary Reed
Are rock climbers the future of the conservation movement? Brady Robinson, executive director of the Boulder-based Access Fund, thinks so. “At the very beginning, we were motivated by access threats, by our access [to climbing areas] being restricted,” Robinson says of his organization. “In my view, to do a good job with access, you have to do a good job with conservation. If the place isn’t taken care of, what good is it to have access to it?”

By Caitlin Rockett
Randy Baker hasn’t gotten a lot of sleep since April 25, but as he’s discovered, that’s what happens when there’s an earthquake in Nepal and you run a nonprofit organization. The Longmont resident is co-founder of Health & Ed 4 Nepal, an NGO formed in 2009 to help the people of Kumari, a remote mountain community in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal, which is closer to the epicenter of April’s massive quake than the nation’s capital of Kathmandu.

The road to the Danish Plan
