1% for Open Space Spring Sign Up Season
Add to your calendar
Date: May 15
Continues Until:
Location: Crested Butte, Gunnison, Almont
Details: The official Spring Sign Up Season for 1% for Open Space is open May 15 through June 16! These slower days of spring as we prepare for the wildness of summer are the perfect time for local businesses to sign up for 1% for Open Space. Since 1997, 1% has collected over 2.7 million dollars to help protect over 12,000 acres solely in Gunnison County. Our most recent project is helping to fund the preservation of 6,000 acres of the Trampe Ranch in Crested Butte, Almont and Gunnison. Past projects in Crested Butte include such popular trails as Snodgrass, the Lower Loop, Lupine Trail, and Rec Path; areas such as North Pole Basin, Paradise Divide, Yule Lakes and Schofield Park; and working ranches such as Rozman, Lazy F Bar and Cold Spring. In Gunnison our projects have put conservation easements on crucial historic ranchland such as Razor Creek and Tomichi Creek, as well as helping to reconstruct Gunnison Whitewater Park features and restore Tomichi Creek on the W Ranch. Business participation is completely free, extremely easy, and we offer free bookkeeping services and support materials to get you started. Voluntary donations are collected from your customers and help preserve Gunnison County's open space, recreational access, gorgeous viewsheds, ranching heritage, wildlife habitat, watersheds and important ecosystems. We have over 100 businesses currently participating. Already with lodges, restaurants, retail stores, real estate agents and guiding companies, there is no limit to the kind of business that can participate. Donations stay in the part of the valley where you conduct your transactions, so businesses from Gunnison to Almont to Crested Butte can all participate. Businesses interested in simply learning more about the program should contact Executive Director Molly Murfee at 970-349-1775 or director@1percentforopenspace.org for a free informational coffee date to answer questions and help strategize how to best fit the program into your business. Visit www.1percentforopenspace.org for complete information on the program, funded projects, and participating businesses.
