Utilizing a sunny windowsill for herbs and potting plants at home has become a welcome respite for many during the COVID-19 pandemic. One local organization is planning on harnessing that momentum for the greater good of the community.
The 4-H Poker Trail Ride will take place this Sunday, June 7. The event, open to those with horses, will be at the Mill Creek Trailhead at 11 a.m. All proceeds benefit the Gunnison County 4-H Horse Program. The first hand is $20. Additional hands are $10, or you can buy five hands for $50. Riders and players under the age of 10 are just $10. Please bring your own water and snacks, and come prepared to follow all county health guidelines.
In an effort to escape the reality of a pandemic, people took to the trails and waterways to enjoy the great outdoors over the Memorial Day weekend. Watercrafts could be seen on the Gunnison River and the Blue Mesa Reservoir, while small groups of people gathered on the banks and shore. Additionally, zebra mussel inspections were conducted in the manner as was done prior to COVID-19.
