Change in Rural Colorado Conversation: Loving Our Land
Colorado Humanities and the Regional Economic Development Institute at Colorado State University offer a series of free, online conversations about the challenges and opportunities facing rural Colorado. ‘Loving Our Land,’ the second event in the series, will focus on natural resource assets, water headlands, and conservation efforts. Join us on March 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. MT to hear from featured panelists Sonja Chavez from the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District, Heather Knight from the Center for Collaborative Conservation, Wade Shelton from the Trust for Public Lands, and Mike Lester from the Colorado State Forest Service.
Moderated by Dr. Dawn Thilmany, this community conversation will share the successes and challenges of Colorado’s programs to protect our natural resources. In short presentations, panelists will talk about how their organizations invest in the water, lands, and forests of the state and will lead a conversation about key trends they believe will guide policy and programs in the Colorado natural resource sector. After the panelists present, the conversation opens to questions and comments from our live audience.
