Support the CORSAR (Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue) program: We have dedicated volunteers that provide a valuable service to all back country users. Without sufficient funding, these groups could no longer provide needed assistance.To purchase a card, $3.00 for a one year; $12.00 for five years, is a marginal expense compared to the cost incurred by these groups when conducting a rescue. Rio Blanco County strongly encourages everyone to purchase a CORSAR card, follow the link here to purchase yours today.
