- November 27: Larimer County - Big Thompson land sale meeting, 5:30 PM at the Bison Center. Lands federally purchased after the Big Thompson Flood are being considered for resale back to private parties. At stake—among other things—may be the loss of public access to the river. This would be a good time to express our opinion about the sale of these lands. Several RMF board members are planning on attending the meeting. Contact the webmaster to be put in touch if you would like to join them.
The meeting will be 5:30pm on Nov 27 at their Bison Center—located at 1800 so. County Road 31, just north of Carter lake, near the Flatiron turnoff. Map.
- November 28: Board Meeting at 7:30.
The meeting will be hosted by Ken Eis. Members are welcome to attend any board meeting. Check with a Board Member to find out where the meeting is being held or check the Board Members’ section on the RMF forum.
Note of the Day:
At the turn of the century, the lower Beaver Kill in New York State was too warm and polluted for trout, due to extensive clearcutting, paper mills, an tanneries along its banks. The banks are now forested, the tanneries and mills are long gone, but this river is still a sensitive ecosystem, threatened by roads and housing developments. —Tom Rosenbauer
