Allie worked with Colorado Parks & Wildlife to monitor and study various animals in the Durango, Colorado area. Allie spend her volunteer time checking and setting bear traps, reviewing images from motion cameras, trapping and banding mourning doves, bird watched, and surveying the rivers and fishing in the waterfalls and streams in the surrounding areas.
"I volunteered with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to monitor and study various animals in the Durango, Colorado area. I grew so much on this solo adventure. I opened my mind up to new experiences and allowed myself to get lost in what I was learning. Thank you to Vail Resorts and EpicPromise for this Experience of a Lifetime! I was able to conquer my fears, learn about the special animals that inhabit one of the state's most beautiful areas and gain a special respect for the work of Colorado Parks & Wildlife."
