Check out what the High Country Conservation Center is taking part in and around Summit County, Colorado:
Want to get a jump start on the gardening season? Join us as HC3 gardener Susie Nothnagel instructs you on the basics of high altitude vegetable gardening. This free workshop is geared towards new gardeners who want to learn the foundation of what grows well in our climate and how to get started.
Need to get that old TV out of the house? What about old cleaners and automotive fluids sitting in the garage? The Summit County Resource Allocation Park (SCRAP) and HC3 work in conjunction with Summit County towns to host the Annual Recycling Event on Saturday, May 18 from 8 am to 2 pm at the Summit Stage Bus Barn. This is your chance to go through the free drive-through drop off for hard to recycle items, including electronics, paints, textiles, pharmaceuticals and household hazardous waste (HHW).
The event is held in conjunction with Town Cleanup Day, which is traditionally celebrated in Blue River, Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, and Silverthorne. Help clean up your community and wrap up the day with a community picnic. For more information on the individual cleanups and picnics, please contact your local town.
Volunteers are the backbone of the Colorado BBQ Challenge in Frisco. They do everything from selling beer to moving tables to assisting with registration and selling t-shirts. This event would not happen without the hundreds of volunteers who donate their time year after year.
The Colorado BBQ Challenge is also extremely proud to be a Zero Waste event proving that you can eat great BBQ, have fun AND care for our beautiful mountain environment all at the same time. Come make a difference by volunteering with the High Country Conservation Center to make our Zero Waste efforts successful!
