Watershed Days 2022: Healthy Headwaters
Saturday, August 27th
9am – 2pm
Camp St. Malo, Allenspark
Watershed Days Overview
Watershed Days is a yearly celebration of healthy and resilient watersheds, and this year we’re looking at things from the very top of the watershed – the headwaters! We are hosting this year’s event at beautiful Camp St. Malo, which is located on Cabin Creek, right at the base of Mt. Meeker. The event will run from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, August 27th, and will include two main components: a morning forest tour, and a host of all-day, drop-in Science Stations. Come join in for one or both! See below for more details on each component, and don’t forget to register.
Thanks to the generosity of our lunch sponsor, CEMEX, lunch is included for all who sign up!
