A good time was had by all at MLC’s first annual Member Picnic. Special thanks to Val and Deanna Truelsen for generously hosting the event, to Dan and Anita Fernandez for grilling, to Geisinger Feed and Grain and the Dolores Food Market for providing discounted local beef and condiments, and to staff and board for the delicious side dishes. The cherry cobbler was a particular hit!
Members were treated to lunch, magnificent scenery, and perfect weather. Val led a tour along the abandoned railbed of the Rio Grande Southern and later Galloping Goose railroad, to a natural spring that feeds a series of wetlands at the site of an abandoned fish hatchery. MLC member Al Schneider identified plants – there were numerous wildflowers blooming – and we saw baby spotted sandpipers.
MLC plans to make this an annual event at different protected properties to keep our members informed about the work they are supporting. Thanks to all for joining us
