In June 2015, Lake County embarked on a year-long research project to better understand the barriers to accessing outdoor recreation in our community. Out of the research, Get Outdoors Leadville! (GOL!) was born. GOL! is committed to breaking down the cultural, social, and economical barriers to safely accessing and enjoying experiences in nature.
GOL!'s mission is to deepen our community's connection to the natural world by expanding equitable access to culturally informed and enriching outdoor experiences.
GOL! envisions a world where people of all identities, backgrounds, and abilities experience safety, wellness, and a sense of belonging in the natural world.
