Friday, June 17th: Art/Science Units – In the morning students will participate in art projects regarding soil health and food (e.g., making paint from different types of muds). In the afternoon they will participate in science experiments testing what healthy versus unhealthy soil looks like which can impact farmers' and ranchers’ ability to grow different types of foods.
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!
