Who We Are
Founded in 1988, the San Juan Mountains Association (SJMA), promotes the exploration and protection of public lands in Southwest Colorado through stewardship and conservation education for people of all ages.
EXPLORE: Through our wide-ranging visitor information centers, we provide guidance on where to go and how to enjoy the outdoors safely and responsibly.
LEARN: Through in-school lessons, field trips, summer camps, afterschool programs, interpretive hikes for adults and community events, we aim to inspire conservation ethics in all ages.
PROTECT: Through paid and volunteer stewardship programs, we help protect natural and cultural resources and encourage public lands visitors to minimize their impact.
