Your help has been crucial in getting after this endeavor. Cloud City Conservation Center truly thanks you for all of your hard work, sturdy hands, delicious bake goods and hours of volunteering! In addition, we thank the amazing people at Growing Spaces for their brilliance and kindness throughout this process.
We look forward to sharing this space with you, Lake County, for educating, growing and supporting our community with fresh and local veggies.
Join us from 5-7pm on April 22nd for the annual Party for the Planet, a celebration of Leadville and Lake County’s efforts to be inspiring stewards of our environment. The Award Ceremony and Party will take place at Harperrose Studios, 601 Harrison Ave. The party will include live music (Groovespeak) and food. It is free for members, $5 for non-members; don’t worry, you can become a member at the door.
Don’t forget to shop for us! (But only for things you need, that are made well and will add value to your life.) The following businesses have pledged 15-20% of their Friday proceeds to the local environmental programs, so get out and support these local businesses on Earth Day: Cookies with Altitude, City On a Hill, Melanzana, Harperrose Studios, High Mountain Pies, Community Threads, Cycles of Life, and Leadville Outdoors.
Check out the EPA’s national highlight of our two local programs, the Green Schools Compost Program and the Environmental Justice program focusing on low-income homes.
Yes, some great things are happening in Leadville and we could not do this work without the help of our local supporters and partners. The tide is indeed changing here in Leadville. We are becoming a community more responsible to the natural world and more capable of the beautiful mountain life we’ve been looking for. Yay us.
Our mission is to inspire stewardship of our natural resources by creating educational opportunities and lasting community infrastructure in Leadville and Lake County, Colorado.
