To commemorate our 50th anniversary this year, CTU has been working on a short film to help tell the stories of our past through the eyes of the future generation. Our stars, George Bryant and Emma Brown are both members of the Greenbacks and have been traveling to some pretty amazing places across Colorado this summer for this film.
Recently, the project took them to Fraser, CO to learn all about the work that CTU and the local chapter has done for the headwaters of the Colorado River. Kirk Klancke, president of the Colorado Headwaters TU chapter, was their guide and shared stories of the “boots on the ground” efforts they have done for the Fraser River through willow plantings, channel deepening, and voluntary no fishing days.
One of the most impactful efforts on the Upper Colorado is how the “Learning by Doing” partnership came to be after plenty of calls, campaigns, letters, and outspoken members of the community urged Denver Water to save the Fraser River. After a negotiation with the help of National TU, the Learning by Doing collaborative agreement put river conservation on table with other water stakeholders.
The film will be premiering at the CTU 50th Anniversary Celebration in downtown Denver at Avanti Food & Beverage | A Collective Eatery in October!
All are welcome and ticket details will be coming soon! —>
