As a small area nonprofit, Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative strives to coordinate and balance preservation and conservation with recreation and economic development so that the natural integrity and heritage of the Mosquito Range and the South Park community is not lost. To succeed, we need the entire community. Programs are science-based, include all applicable partners, and welcome everyone interested in making a difference. Founded in 2007, the MRHI mission is: Through cooperative efforts, seeks to conserve unique natural areas, preserve historic & cultural sites, promote diverse recreation and develop community business opportunities. VISTA will help address these increasing issues by working with towns, county, national heritage area and forest service stakeholders to assist in the development and implementation of a land conservation and recreation plan for the Mosquito Range. This plan will focus on travel management, land conservation and easement priorities to address development concerns, and historical resource protection through interpretation and restoration to reduce vandalism and preserve our remaining mining heritage.
