The Town of Breckenridge and HC3 invite Breckenridge residents to discuss a proposed “Save as You Recycle” program to increase recycling in Breckenridge. This program will allow residents to select different size curbside trash bins, with smaller trash bins (and large recycling containers) costing less than larger trash bins.
Thurs, June 28, 5:30-7pm. Presentation to begin at 5:30pm.
Breck Rec Center, Multi-Purpose Room
Town of Dillon was the only community without a community garden until now! Thanks to a generous donation from the Stair family and the hard work of town staff, Dillon now has a community garden to call its own. Join us for a special ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, July 5 from 6-7pm.

The Town of Frisco is proud to bring together great music for a great cause at the free outdoor Concert in the Park series at the Frisco Historic Park gazebo & lawn at 120 Main Street. These concerts usually feature some of great up-and-coming musical talent, as well as well-loved favorites. You’ll hear everything from country to jazz to Americana/bluegrass to good ole’ rock-n-roll.
On July 26th, you will hear music from the Chris Duarte Group, a style of Texas blues-rock that draws on elements of jazz, blues, and rock and roll. Refreshments will be available for purchase to benefit the High Country Conservation Center, the local non-profit designated for the evening.
The High Country Conservation Center is proud to be working with The Keystone Neighbourhood Company and Keystone Festivals as Zero Waste educators at the 22nd Annual Keystone Bluegrass & Beer Festival, August 3-5, 2018.
About the Event:
Keystone brings the wonders of Appalachia to the Rockies. Down-home cooking, frothy flavors and mountain music are just pieces of the pie. In a whirlwind of hillbilly luxuries, folks gather while 40+ craft breweries from Colorado and beyond showcase their unique blends of hops and barleys while 14 national and regional bluegrass acts entertain on three different village stages.
In celebration of locally grown food, the High Country Conservation is hosting its Annual CSA Celebration, Wednesday, August 15th from 5-7pm at the Summit CSA greenhouses in Frisco. Appetizers and libations will be served, and you’ll get the chance to tour the greenhouses and mingle with HC3 staff & board members, as well as other community members. RSVP to Barry Rubenstein at email@example.com.
