The Town of Vail will sponsor another installment of its Lunch with the Locals series at noon Wednesday, March 29 at the Grand View on the third level of the Lionshead Welcome Center. Attendees will enjoy a free lunch while listening to a presentation from Jason Carey of RiverRestoration.org. Parking is free upon entry after 3 p.m.
Carey will talk about specific creek restoration practices the Town of Vail will be employing to restore Gore Creek and how those techniques can also be applied on private property. Experts from Walking Mountains Science Center, Eagle River Watershed Council and Town of Vail will be on hand to answer questions about what residents can do to “bring a little wild” back into their landscaping. There will also be native seed mixes, stickers, informational brochures and reusable grocery bags given away to attendees.
The town environmental sustainability team is organizing the event. For details about this and other upcoming activities, contact Pete Wadden, watershed education coordinator at 970-479-2144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
