At this informal networking event, Sarah Jones, YVSC’s Executive Director, will speak about the connection between public lands and climate change and give a quick update on climate action locally. County Commissioner Tim Corrigan will speak about the importance of public lands in Routt County.
We are also honored to have Dylan Roberts, State Representative for Eagle and Routt County and Steamboat native, provide an update on climate action at the state level. Roberts recently sponsored HB18-1274, which would have required that, by the year 2050, statewide greenhouse gas emissions be reduced by at least 80% of 2005 levels.
For the second year in a row, Mountain Tap Brewery is brewing a special Saison beer in honor of Colorado Public Lands Day called “Get Out!”—encouraging beer drinkers to get out and enjoy the land. Come raise a glass to our Yampa Valley public lands!
