Bear Smart Durango
Celebrating our 15th year of working in the community, we are dedicated to reducing human and bear conflict in the greater Durango area by addressing the root causes of conflict: eliminating access to human foods that attract and create "problem" bears in the first place. We offer REAL solutions in making our community safer for both residents and bears.
BMX of Durango
From the moment that the starting gate slams down you and up to seven other racers blast at a full sprint toward the first obstacle, BMX racing will give you that rush of adrenaline you've been looking for. Big jumps can mean big air. Steep backsides, deep turns, and downhill sections can add up to massive speeds.
Durango Montessori Elementary School
The Environmental Center Environmental Center is a 26-year strong organization committed to the future of both our planet and the people living upon it. We advance environmental and social justice initiatives and cultivate agents of social change by working with FLC students to develop and implement solutions on campus and in our community. Through the training, teamwork, and leadership required to actualize projects, EC students become the passionate, skilled leaders and citizens that our society requires to solve tomorrow’s intractable issues.
Habitat For Humanity of La Plata County
Our mission strives to address the current affordable housing crisis in La Plata County through securing community contributions of time, energy and funds to build modest affordable homes for ownership. Homes are owned and qualifying low-income households already struggling in our community pay a mortgage that is within their household's ability. Our local model creates a livable wage effect and empowers families to succeed and continue to serve in our community. We do not discriminate due to age, familial size, religious beliefs, or gender and seek to support those showing a level of financial literacy and willingness to partner.
