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, focuses on natural resource assets, water headlands, and conservation efforts. 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 talk about how their organizations invest in the water, lands, and forests of the state.
Moderated by Dr. Dawn Thilmany, this series of conversations begins with the first program, Innovation and Resiliency in the Covid Era, discussing economic challenges and opportunities.
The series is available to view on Colorado Humanities’ YouTube and Facebook accounts.
