May 26, 2014--San Juan Mountains Association serving up fun this summer (Durango Herald)

This will be SJMA’s third year offering the Forests to Faucets: My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains teacher workshop, taking place June 26-27. This workshop is a partnership with Mountain Studies Institute in Silverton and the Water Information Program in Durango. This year, we’ll take yet another new tack on the water workshop, focusing on the Dolores and San Juan watersheds, with a special interest in the history and prehistory of the area. We’ll travel from a fen at the top of Taylor Mesa to the Anasazi Heritage Center, Yucca House and the Ute Farm and Ranch south of Towaoc. We can do all this thanks to generous grants from the Southwestern Water Conservation District, and two chapters of Trout Unlimited: Dolores River Anglers and Five Rivers. Any teachers who are interested in sharing this topic with their classes as well as obtaining continuing education hours and/or Adams State University credit should email [email protected].
