5th Annual Headwaters Hoedown

This event is now over. Thanks to all who made it a success!

Get your dancing shoes ready for the conservation celebration of the year! Everyone is invited to the Rio Grande Headwaters Land Trust's 5th Annual Headwaters Hoedown on Sunday, September 13th from 1 to 5 pm at the beautiful Gilmore Ranch, just west of Alamosa on the Rio Grande. The event will celebrate the many landowners and partners who help RiGHT conserve the Valley's "land, water and way of life." The afternoon will feature a local food feast, fine wine and beer, and live music by Don Richmond & the Rifters. There will be a walking ranch tour, a studio tour with sculptor Jim Gilmore, and lots of fun activities for kids, so bring the whole family! We hope to see you there.
