Check out what the High Country Conservation Center is taking part in and around Summit County, Colorado:
Continental Divide Land Trust and HC3 have partnered once again to bring you the 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. This festival portrays individuals and communities across the globe solving climate change issues revolving around water conservation, energy, food systems, biodiversity, resource management, and the protection and restoration of wild lands and wild waters. You’ll explore the world improving movements with leading environmental activists and professionals, filmmakers and celebrities, celebrating the natural and human world in all its diversity.
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the closing event of Ullr Festival and provides inspiration for the whole family. Beer, wine, soda, and movie snacks are available for purchase. Epic prizes are given away at intermission.
Tickets are TBA.
The Tim McClure Benefit is HC3’s largest fundraiser of the year, held in memory of Tim McClure, a conservation pioneer who began Summit’s first recycling program back in 1976. The benefit is held to honor his legacy and support the HC3 programs that continue his vision. The event also recognizes the conservation efforts of community members and businesses with the presentation of the Green Scene Awards. It takes place thanks to generous in-kind donations from Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise.
Save our Snow is your chance to come out and enjoy epic powder at Arapahoe Basin and help conservation efforts in Summit County. Come 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. All proceeds from this event will benefit the High Country Conservation Center, to help us provide awareness, education, appreciation, and preservation of our environment.
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.
