Event Inspiration

IMG 3402

Looking to Oh Be Joyful Creek

Located close to 10,000′ in elevation above the town of Crested Butte, this site at the confluence of the Slate River and Oh-Be-Joyful Creek is still threatened by the potential of large scale industrial mining, as well as having been heavily impacted by historic heavy metals and coal mining. This site exemplifies our past abuse of pristine headwaters for short-term economic gain, and brings into sharp focus our continuing use of water mostly for human concerns. The event will highlight the connective and healing properties of water and allow participants to express their gratitude for water on behalf of the human, and more-than-human world.
