Colorado's outdoor and recreation industry is one of the state's largest providers of jobs and state revenue. Sadly, climate change - being driven largely by fossil fuel operations - is taking a toll on our outdoor opportunities with decreased snowpack, longer drought seasons, increases in severity and frequency of wildfires, heatwaves, and unprecedented number of Ozone Alert days. The climate crisis threatens the future of our outdoor spaces, recreational opportunities, jobs, economy and Colorado way of life. Each event will focus on the economic impacts climate change brings to all 4 seasons and will feature a unique panel of experts, community advocates, athletes & outdoor enthusiasts that all have their own unique outdoor mission.
Due to warming temps, our snow is melting earlier, which has led to shorter ski seasons and low water levels for our river sports such as kayaking and rafting. Stretches of Colorado's rivers are closed for fishing. The Colorado River is drying up due to a historic drought. Water is not only essential for our public health, but also impacts our outdoor experiences year round.
Join us on May 23rd, as the Outdoor Series: Spring event brings together expert voices from the scientific, environmental economics, and outdoor adventure community to share perspectives on how warming temps are taking a toll on Colorado’s springtime.
This series is being held in partnership with Patagonia and American Whitewater. This will be a hybrid event, with opportunities to attend in person or online. The in-person event will be hosted at the Patagonia Store in Denver and will have beverages (by 3rd Bird Kombucha) and catering (by Vegan Van).
Join us for live art - 6:30pm to 7:15pm!
3rd Bird has always been about more than kombucha. It is about fostering community and learning from each other.
