Boulder ICO provides safe and fun nature outings and wilderness adventures for Colorado youth in Boulder County and Denver who would not otherwise have these opportunities.  It is a 100% volunteer-run outreach program of the Sierra Club.  We take participants backpacking, hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, birding, and snowshoeing.  A few of our unique trips have included wildlife camera trapping in open space, meeting wolves at a wolf sanctuary, and off-season service visits to 10th Mountain huts.
