Check out what the High Country Conservation Center is taking part in and around Summit County, Colorado:
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.
Please RSVP to Linda Oliver, Event Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-575-2623 by June 29, 2018.
Join HC3’s Community Program Coordinator, Hallie Jaeger, for lessons on food waste prevention and how to donate excess harvest to families in need through the Grow to Share Program. WIC (Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, & Children) Director, Whitney Horner, will be on-hand to share healthy recipes and speak about the impact of your donations.
Come to The Crown in Breckenridge or Abbey’s Coffee in Frisco on Wednesday, July 25th from 7:30-9am for HC3’s #BeLocal Day. Chat with staff and board members of HC3, learn about our programs and grab a free water bottle (limited supply).
Being “local” isn’t defined by “us vs. them” or by how many years you may have lived in Summit County or by how many days you’ve skied. Being local is a state of mind. And, it’s how you act!
We believe that anyone and everyone who loves this place embodies the spirt of a local and can #BeLocal.
We want to celebrate our locals – for who they are and what they believe. And, most importantly, we want to activate you to care even more … to care enough to give back, to conserve, to recycle and to get involved.
So, let’s join together to create a brighter, better future. Because, after all, we can all #BeLocal! Join us.
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, Tuesday, August 14th 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.

Imagine a day with no water in Lake Dillon, with stream flows too low to support wildlife. Water is not only essential to life, it’s an integral piece of our mountain lifestyle – from the places we play to the beer we drink. To raise awareness of this precious resource, water providers across Summit County will offer facility tours on and around October 10. Learn about where your water comes from and how water providers bring this precious resource from the stream to your home.
Town of Frisco: Offering tours of the water plant in 3 one hour time blocks with a max of 25 people per block. The time blocks will be as follows: 10AM to 11AM, 1PM to 2PM and 3PM to 4PM. Please call Teresa @ 970-668-0836 to RSVP with your pick of time slot.
