Iron Springs Open Space tour

Continental Divide Land Trust invites the community for a tour to Iron Springs Open Space to enjoy spring wildflower blooms and learn more about the proposal of the Colorado Department of Transportation to re-route Highway 9 through the middle of this conserved property. CDLT will share maps of the proposal and other information about the recpath, wildlife underpasses, and impacts to the conservation values. This will be an easy hike along the recpath and Iron Springs Road. Iron Springs is owned by Summit County Open Space & Trails and is protected with a conservation easement held by CDLT.

The tour is from 10 a.m. to noon. Please wear suitable footwear, bring water, sunscreen, hat and dress for the weather. Dogs on leash are welcome. Free for current CDLT supporters or a suggested donation of $5 per person, kids free. Meet at 10 a.m. at Summit High School in the student parking lot on the south side of the building. For more information, contact Continental Divide Land Trust at (970) 453-3875 or info@cdlt.org or visit http://www.CDLT.org.

Frisco second-graders plant 200 seedlings

Smiles and laughter were plentiful at the County Commons on May 29 as the Frisco Elementary second-grade classes spent the afternoon planting 200 ponderosa pine seedlings. Many thanks go out to teachers Heidi Sodetz and Cindy Birchler along with Summit County Open Space & Trails Department for coordinating the day and to Summit County CSU Extension, Friends of Dillon Ranger District, Bristlecone Foundation and Randall McKinnon for their assistance on making this day possible. Great job to the students for their hard work and enthusiasm planting so many trees!
