Members represent a wide variety of trail interests (motorized and non-motorized), with the goal of working cooperatively for trails and greenways throughout the state.

Christian lives in Erie.  He was previously a member of the Boulder County Parks and Open Space Advisory Committee.

If time permits we may also discuss the following:

  • North Trail Study Area
  • Growing BATCO

  • More — what would YOU like to talk about?
