We had a fantastic annual member meeting on December 6th. Thanks to all that attended. FHTU was privileged to have a private, exclusive screening of the film, A River's Reckoning. The film chronicles a Colorado ranching family's relationship and stewardship of the upper Colorado River, both in drought years and years of plenty. The film will premiere at the 2018 Wild and Scenic Film Festival. The filmmakers, Josh (TU national) and Russ were on hand to share with us the inspiration behind the film, the conservation success that this family has catalyzed in the upper Colorado basin, and the broader conversation that the film is meant to foster. We hope to see A River's Reckoning again at the 5 Point Film Festival, so please spread the word.
The Ferdinand Hayden Chapter will be partnering with a number of local organizations this Saturday, May 6th to work on a widely used public boat ramp in Carbondale. We invite you and your family to join us for a half day of work and lunch along the Roaring Fork River. The current work plan involves installing raft tie ups, trail work, and trimming overgrown vegetation. Come get to know your fellow FHTU members and neighbors at this family-friendly event hosted by our friends at Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and the Roaring Fork Conservancy.
