Western Colorado Congress hosts

Saturday March 27, 2010
at the historic Avalon Theatre
Grand Junction, CO

Event Description
The '09 event was a big success for WCC and we are hoping for a sell-out crowd again this year. There will be 4 films, each one outlining a different topic from environmental conservation to alternative fuels. Total running time is about 2.5 hours including a 20 minute intermission.

There will be one door prize this year, a handsome Osprey Vector 22 lightweight wheeled travel pack ($200 value) and it would be a great addition to anyone's travel gear collection.

Sign up for the door prize drawing at the even t. Door prize drawing will be after intermission.

An entertaining social event that will help Western Colorado Congress build membership and increase awareness of its efforts in the western Colorado community.

Karen Anspacher-Meyer, Ralf Meyer - 56 minutes
Wolves and cougars, once driven to the edge of existence are finding their way back--from the Yellowstone plateau to the canyons of Zion, from the farm country of northern Minnesota to the rugged open range of the West. In Yellowstone National Park, a land inhabited again by wolves after a 70-year absence, the chain of life flourishes once again since their return. www.lordsofnature.org

Read an associated article in High Country News about the possible return of wolves to Colorado.

What we eat, where we eat, and how we eat reveals much about our relationship to food. Today, more than ever, we need to understand where our food comes from and how it reaches us. If you want change, vote three times a day - with your fork! www.nourishlife.org
