 John Fielder Celebrates 20 years of Colorado land protection at the Lincoln Center

This November marks the 20th anniversary the creation of  Great Outdoors Colorado by Colorado voters, who designated that the program receive up to 50 percent of lottery proceeds for the preservation, protection and enhancement of the state’s wildlife, parks, rivers, trails and open spaces.  At the same time, northern Colorado’s own land protection organization, Legacy Land Trust, kicks off their 20th anniversary this year, and the two come together to celebrate land conservation.  All the while Larimer County Natural Resources is engaging the public in an unprecedented effort to gather preferences for recreation and conservation in Northern Colorado through the Our Lands, Our Future Study.  All in all it is a great time to be celebrating conservation in the state of Colorado. 
20 Years of Great Outdoors Colorado
A Presentation by John Fielder
December 15, 2012
Lincoln Center – Canyon West Ballroom
7:00p – 10:00p

GOCO and Fielder have collaborated to commemorate the work achieved with GOCO’s share of Lottery funds.   In less than two years John drove 35,000 miles, from one end of Colorado to the other, visiting all of the state’s 64 counties and practically every city and town to complete the project with GOCO.  His slides will show some of the most beautiful wild, open, and working lands and trails in the state, all protected with collaborative GOCO funds.  Many of Larimer County’s Parks and Open Spaces have benefited from Great Outdoors Colorado Funding, so it’s likely you’ll see some of your favorite places throughout the presentation!   
Proceeds will benefit Legacy Land Trust and the Larimer County Department of Natural Resources.
Tickets are $15.  Go, or call (970) 266-1711.
