Household leaks can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide, so each year HC3 and EPA’s WaterSense team encourages community members to hunt down the drips during Fix a Leak Week. Mark your calendars for EPA’s tenth annual Fix a Leak Week, March 19 through 25, 2018—but remember that you can find and fix leaks inside and outside your home to save valuable water and money all year long.
Green Drinks is a social networking event for individuals interested in sustainability and the environment.
Please join us for a conversation about local sustainability efforts and conservation trends here in Summit County. Find out what’s happening with Summit County, the local towns, non-profits, and businesses. Attendees are encouraged to share any current or future sustainability initiatives with the group. Come network and engage with members of our community.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the High Country Conservation Center, to help us provide awareness, education, appreciation, and preservation of our environment. Come on out and meet A-Basin’s Green Team and representatives from HC3 and learn about A-Basin’s sustainability initiatives, while elevating your green experience at Arapahoe Basin.
To celebrate the day and the “Power To Save The Powder” A-Basin will have a tent village in Mountain Goat Plaza with some Colorado friends that practice sustainability in their businesses and products. There will be plenty of ski and snowboard vendors around demoing skis. You will need a $10 donation to HC3 to demo some of the newest equipment around, this is not a day to be missed!
We will also have a prize drawing and silent auction with prizes from our sustainability minded friends in the tent village.

The KidWind Challenge seeks to engage students in the opportunities and challenges of a wind-powered society. Student teams that participate in the Challenge construct a wind turbine that they test in a wind tunnel, document and present the process by which they researched and constructed the turbine, understand the consequences of how we generate and consume energy, and engage in a variety of instant challenges to gauge their on-the-spot engineering and problem-solving skills.
