Friday, June 24: Art/Science Units – In the morning students will participate in art projects regarding water and air (e.g., making flowers using different materials, including water and air). In the afternoon the students will participate in Coldharbour's River Watch Program where they'll be testing things like water velocity, pH, and hardness. They will also do experiments testing air quality and humidity.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
