Thank you for your generous gift of $3,000 toward the Crested Butte Land Trust’s Gunsight Bridge replacement. We are truly grateful that you have chosen the Gunnison Valley’s local land trust as a recipient of your continued generosity in memory of Chris.
We are putting your support right to work. In September, our engineer from Ridgeway, CO, with direction from our Colorado wetland ecologists, will start the deconstruction of the old bridge and calving elk, nesting great blue herons, and a myriad of other wildlife species – will soon see the benefits of returning the river to its natural flow. And, the community will have a new safe crossing to the Slate River drainage from town.
Your involvement is a vital part of this impactful work – taking care of the lands and trails Chris loved, in addition to protecting new places for the next generation to enjoy. So again, thank you for continuing to be an important partner to the Land Trust and for your passion for protecting the present for the future. We look forward to continuing to work closely with you on behalf of the Gunnison Valley.
