For the March 9th Pub Talk at High Hops Brewery, Dr. Jason M.

Additionally, Dr. LaBelle will discuss his studies on the Kaplan-Hoover Bison Bonebed site, which lies just a few miles southeast of High Hops Brewing.

Dr. LaBelle is an archaeologist interested in Native American foragers inhabiting the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains of North America, with research spanning several periods over the last 12,000 years. His current work involves landscape level survey and testing of prehistoric and protohistoric sites surrounding the Lindenmeier Folsom site, a National Historic Landmark. Dr. LaBelle is currently Past-President of the Colorado Council of Professional Archaeologists and has actively worked with avocational archaeologists throughout the Plains in documenting their collections.

2nd ANNUAL POUDRE POUR

Brought to you by the Poudre Heritage Alliance (PHA) and Local Craft Brewers & Distillers

Local craft brewers, distillers and the Poudre Heritage Alliance are happy to announce we are hosting the 2nd Annual POUDRE POUR to highlight the major ingredient that makes stouts, lagers, and craft liquors so tasty…WATER from the Poudre River!

This event is not your typical brewfest! The POUDRE POUR raises awareness about local water issues and brings community members together to celebrate our Poudre River heritage and our most important resource:  water. It includes an afternoon of FUN and LEARNING with craft brews, local coffee, and natural soda tasting stations; appetizers made with farm fresh ingredients; presentations on the many facets of “water issues” in Northern Colorado; kids activities; live entertainment indoors and outdoors; costumed docents in historic cabins; art exhibitions highlighting the beauty of the Poudre River corridor; and a silent auction featuring art, trips, treats, tickets, and more!

Proceeds will benefit the Poudre Heritage Alliance, the 501c3 managing nonprofit of the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area. The PHA works to PROMOTE a variety of historical and cultural opportunities, ENGAGE people in their river corridor and INSPIRE learning, preservation, and stewardship.

The indoor/outdoor POUDRE POUR will be hosted at the Carnegie Center for Creativity and Heritage Courtyard at 200 Mathews St, Fort Collins, 80524. The venue reflects the region’s cultural heritage and ties directly to the event theme. The event will be held regardless of rain or snow, with contingency plans in case of inclement weather.

CCWD Childrens Water Festival - 2019 @ Island Grove Regional Park | Greeley | Colorado | United States

CCWCD Children’s Water Festival will promote hands-on and brains-on learning about local water issues to fourth grade students in the Weld, Morgan and Adams counties.

This one day FREE event will bring water professionals from around the state of Colorado to provide presentations and activities about water, water conservation, human health and aquatic life while covering a wide range of core curriculum areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, visual arts, and health & wellness.  The activities will help students answer one or more of these questions:

  • Why is water so important to life?
  • How much water do we use and how much is there?
  • What is the water cycle and why is it important?
  • What is a watershed and why is it important?
  • How are trees, plants, animals, people, soils and water interdependent?
  • How do our actions affect water and all nature?

The festival goals are to teach fourth grade students that water is an essential, limited resource and that they can take action to protect this natural resource.  We provide teachers with materials and lessons that they can use for years to come.

The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District created the Children’s Water Festival in 1991. This festival is one of the oldest children’s water festivals in the nation. In 2006, the City of Greeley Water Conservation and Stormwater programs began co-sponsoring the event.

This scholarship initiative provides field trip funding to Larimer and Weld County schools when they take educational field trips to the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area.
