Who is (What is) Manitou CATS
Starting in 2014 trail users and nature lovers around the Pikes Peak region started taking responsibility for developing and maintaining the trails, parks and open spaces we all use. The word “Manitou” means “Great Spirit ” to the Algonquin tribe. Nature is a path available to all to find balance, connection and joy. Trails protect nature from human over use. It is up to our community to protect and sustain the beauty around us for future generations.
We are focused on creating enjoyable, safe and worthwhile outdoor stewardship projects for volunteers. Lately however we have branched out to support outdoor projects that builds community spirit and helps the environment in many different ways. Thanks for helping.
There is a spin-off group called CATS Corps, which is made up of crew leaders and highly experience trail builders. The CATS Corps takes on more technical projects and they work in small groups when they can.
