Presented by Mountain Towns 2030 in partnership with Fat Tire
During the Mountain Towns 2030 Climate Solutions Summit, join us for an evening with Pete McBride as he shares his first-hand account of the climate change-fueled drought and its impacts on the Colorado River Basin. For more than a decade, National Geographic photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride has focused his lenses on the state of water, development, and a changing climate across the West and the Colorado River Basin. He has documented the river and its tributaries, including an 800-mile trail-less trek on foot through the entire length of the Grand Canyon.
McBride will share stories and images from the river’s changing snowpack to its shrinking reservoirs and its now cracked-earth delta, highlighting how awareness and activism have become ever more urgent to save this iconic river, a lifeline to 40 million Americans that begins in Colorado’s high country.
With sobering examples from a changing climate and our collective challenges, McBride illuminates the urgency of these issues — but also will show stories of community successes and hope against the odds. Presented by Mountain Towns 2030, in partnership with Fat Tire.
This event is open to the public with ticket purchase. Free to students with a student ID.
