Stand at the Summit
Two Valleys, One Landscape
Thursday, September 30
5 – 7 p.m. | Forest Service land atop McClure Pass
Free and open to the public
Come take a Stand at the Summit and help defend public lands on both sides of McClure Pass from oil and gas development! The Roaring Fork and North Fork Valleys are united to conserve the land, rivers, and habitats that support local agriculture and provide our communities with clean air, pure water, and abundant recreation opportunities. Join us and learn how protected public lands can help address climate change and contribute to nationwide 30×30 goals (protecting 30% of our lands and waters by 2030)!
- Remarks from community leaders and stakeholders
- Live music and a sampling of snacks and libations from both valleys
- Camping is welcome after the event
Co-hosted by: Wilderness Workshop, Western Slope Conservation Center, High Country Conservation Advocates, and the Colorado Farm & Food Alliance. Please bring a personal camping chair and / or blanket with you! This is a family-friendly event.
