Water Meeting Holiday Nature Center Events


Last updated 12/15/2017 at 2:58pm

I wanted to thank all those that came out for the joint Town Hall on water issues I participated in this past Monday night. Hosted by State Representative Landgraf, it was well attended by Fountain Valley residents and included Fountain Mayor Ortega, representatives from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, El Paso County Department of Health, the EPA, the water districts of Fountain, Security and Widefield, as well as representatives of the offices of Senator Bennet and Congressman Lamborn. We provided updates (which I summarized in a Commissioner's Corner last month) and answered questions from residents. Thanks again for participating.

Also, as I've mentioned in previous articles, we are finishing up our discussions on the 2018 budget. Our board meeting to approve the new budget will be held the morning of December 12, at Centennial Hall.

And finally, I wanted to get out information of two upcoming activities at our Fountain Creek Nature Center. Enjoy "Nature Adventures: Animals in Winter," on December 7, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. Children, ages 3-6 with an adult, will enjoy hands-on activities, puppet shows or stories, crafts, and a hike. $3 per person including adults & siblings. Prepaid reservations are required. Call 719-520-6745 to make a reservation (limit 24 participants).

Also at the Nature Center, take your family on a "Nature Hike with Santa," on December 9 & 16, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. There, you'll be able to participate in the interactive reading of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem, and make snowflake crafts while waiting for Santa to arrive. Then hike the nature trail with Santa to see what gifts nature gives us. $3 per member, $4 per nonmember. Call 719-520-6745 to make a reservation or for additional information.

Enjoy a wonderful week.
