Stand at the Summit
Two valleys, one landscape
On Thursday, September 30th, join Western Slope Conservation Center, Wilderness Workshop, High Country Conservation Advocates and Colorado Farm and Food Alliance for a conversation about the shared issues our valleys are facing. The event will feature comments from community leaders, live music, and snacks and libations from both valleys. Camping is welcome and encouraged after the event is completed. Please bring a personal camping chair and/or blanket with you! This is a family-friendly event.
The North Fork and Roaring Fork Valleys and the adjacent communities are united in defending our local public lands on both sides of McClure Pass. We stand together to ensure responsible use, management and preservation of the land, rivers and habitats that provide our communities with the clean air, pure water and abundant recreational opportunities we rely on.
This year’s event will focus on the ambitious national goal to protect 30 percent of America’s lands and water by 2030 and how our region can play a role through the protection of important local landscapes and watersheds, such as the Crystal River, Thompson Divide, North Fork Valley, and the Grand Mesa Gunnison and Uncompahgre National Forests.

Directions: Take Highway 133 to the top of McClure Pass. Turn onto Ragged Mountain Road. Drive approximately 2 miles up the road to a pull off on the right side where the event will be held.
