2:00 – 4:30 PM – Meet at the Chautauqua Community House
Following the Marshall Fire last December, Chautauqua provided shelter and the Dining Hall offered sustenance to hundreds of community members whose homes were destroyed or damaged. Then, in March, the NCAR fire forced Chautauqua, itself, to evacuate. After a short film, take a deep dive with documentary filmmakers, local fire experts, and community leaders as we discuss the threat fire poses to us all, particularly those on the front lines. Panelists will outline practical steps Coloradans can take to protect our homes, communities, and open space. Those who would like to work to clear brush and leaf debris at Chautauqua are also invited to attend the Firewise Workday on Saturday, July 23.
This event is free, but registration is required!
