The LFVC recently published a 15-year summary newsletter, to highlight the dramatic successes of the organization since it's inception. Around the Alpine Loop, the LFVC has participated in 7 mine clean ups-most recently the Hough Mine on Engineer Pass, which previously contributed over 90% of heavy metal contamination to Lake City's drinking water source, Henson Creek.
In addition, the LFVC has conducted water sampling for 12 years, helped conserve 156-acres of land surrounding Lake San Cristobal, restored 3,300 feet of river, and planted more than 1,000 trees to revegetate our river banks. Of course, none of this would be possible without the incredible 5,000 hours of time contributed by our many willing volunteers!!
PARTNERS IN STEWARDSHIP
Join us in the preservation of wild resources for future generations, in being a part of the beauty that surrounds us, and in conserving one of Colorado's last frontiers.
We envision the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River drainage as a healthy watershed, defined by a balance of resource conservation, economic opportunity, recreational activities, and community values. We envision a broad-based partnership of an educated citizenry, nonprofit groups, and governmental entities that sustains, protects, and improves the health of the watershed.
