Rangeland Resilience Workshop
July 27 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
The Rangeland Resilience Workshop (hosted by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and CSU-Extension) on July 27 (10 am to 4 pm) will include information about how to build long-term resilience into the landscape through various restoration techniques. With continued drought conditions, these techniques are designed to help keep water on the landscape for longer, improving forage production even in dry years. Additionally, a meet and greet will allow landowners to meet agency personnel who can provide advice or financial assistance to implement projects, and a field tour will show some of the work on the ground. Workshop is free and lunch is included. RSVP to Marcella Tarantino at [email protected] or 970-707-3049. Can’t make it to the Gunnison workshop? Additional dates/locations: Hotchkiss July 19 and Glade Park July 29.
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!
