Blue River Watershed Group holds fundraiser Sunday

What better way is there to protect local rivers than by quaffing cold microbrews and getting down to some of the best local bluegrass around?

The Blue River Watershed Group will provide just such an opportunity on Sunday evening at its annual fundraiser, to be held at the Backcountry Brewery, on the corner of Main Street and Summit Boulevard in Frisco.

“This is our major fundraiser for the year, and it’s quite important to our work,” executive director Steve Swanson said.

The local organization strives to protect and restore the Blue River and its tributaries throughout Summit County through a variety of conservation, restoration and education projects. Among other work, the group has been instrumental in identifying sources of water pollution on the Snake River.

Sunday’s event will feature door prizes, educational booths from local conservation groups and live tunes from Randall McKinnon.

“I just heard him the other night in Dillon, and he’s even better than I remember. For all practical purposes, he’s a cowboy,” Swanson said of McKinnon’s style.

Tickets are $15 at the door. The event begins at 6 p.m.
