Who We Are
The 13ers group provides opportunities to learn about the work of The Nature Conservancy and its partners, meet other like-minded individuals, and find ways to make a difference in the health of our planet.
The Nature Conservancy’s 13ers brings together a cross-section of Coloradans who share a love of nature, a concern for the environment, and a belief that hope and action are indispensable for making a difference. Our goal is to ensure that our peers and the next generation of Coloradans learn about and participate in conservation at a local, regional, and global level, and to help raise funds for The Nature Conservancy's priorities in Colorado and around the world.
The 13ers is open to Coloradans age 21-40 who enjoy the outdoors and want to learn how to protect it for future generations.
In mountaineering in the United States, a fourteener (or "14er") is a mountain peak that exceeds 14,000 feet in elevation. Colorado has 53 peaks that fit this description.
The name “The 13ers” is a play on Colorado’s 14ers. In our eyes if you’re a 14er you are already the top dog. You’ve already done what you set out to do. The 13ers is a group for young professionals, for emerging leaders. It’s for those of us who still have a bit more climbing left to do.
