North America's Premier International Resort Community

Lunch with Locals

Lunch with the Locals is a FREE, monthly community lunch and ecology symposium hosted by the Town of Vail.

The purpose of the program is to raise awareness and educate the community about local environmental sustainability issues.  Thanks to our sponsoring partners, Eagle River Water & Sanitation District and High Five Access Media, we have begun to record and archive the presentations here so you can watch them even if you are not able to attend the event!
