Conservation Partners to Celebrate Successful Project

YAMPA RIVERRepresentatives of Western Rivers Conservancy, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service and the Yampa River System Legacy Partnership will gather on the Yampa River tomorrow to celebrate their successful conservation of the historic Hubbard Summer Camp, at the confluence of the Yampa River and Sarvis Creek, and they’re inviting the public to join them. The event will include a brief presentation on the history of the project, and a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Hubbard Summer Camp property was conserved in December of 2014, and the celebration was deferred until summer weather would allow volunteers to make improvements to the property, which lies three miles downstream from Stagecoach Reservoir on the banks of a classic tailwater fishery. Conserving the property created new public access to a stretch of the river that was formerly closed to the public. Tomorrow’s celebration runs from noon to 2.
