We are proud to be associated with a number of extraordinary organizations, who we work with throughout the year and in imperative ways.

the work of hgmff
Sustaining and Preserving the land it owns
The HGMFF takes a holistic approach in reviewing a variety of issues including fire mitigation, safety and environmental impact of trails and structures. The organization has had the good fortune of successfully partnering with the community, the town of Green Mountain Falls, and the Green Mountain Falls Committee to improve the trail systems at the H.B. Wallace Reserve, Mount Dewey, the Catamount Trail and the Red Butte Recreation Area.
Additional HGMFF properties include the Green Box Arts Workshop on Lake Street; Lakeview Terrace, which consists of two buildings: a historic inn and “The Shed”, a renovated residential space that houses the Green Box Artist-in-Residency program.
ArtDesk is a free, quarterly publication devoted to the contemporary arts, performance, and thought. ArtDesk keeps readers informed by focusing on regional and national events, exhibitions, and education, promoting creative literacy and appreciation.

Green Box started as a program of the Kirkpatrick Family Fund. Additionally, the Fund has partners with the town of Green Mountain Falls on restoration efforts of the Sallie Bush Community Building, the Lake Street beautification project, and maintenance projects to town parks and Gazebo Lake.
Friends of the ute pass trails
This integral community organization is made up of local trails enthusiasts who volunteer their time to develop and maintain a system of local trails to serve recreational needs of town residents and visitors.
Church in the wildwood
Green Box utilizes spaces inside this beautiful 19th century church each summer.
The Church in the Wildwood is an inclusive, relationship-based community. The church shares commitment to worship and study, fellowship and mutual care, and the community beyond their congregation.
Ute Pass Elementary School / MSSD14
The Manitou Springs School District (MSSD 14) is our community’s public school district. We are thrilled to partner with them to provide many summer camp opportunities and additional year-round engagement, primarily through the Ute Pass Elementary School, located just outside of town.
