A total of 407 students participated in this year’s Cottonwood Days, making our annual event one of the most successful to date! 6th grade students from Delta, Olathe, and Montrose county schools joined the BLM, CCA, and other volunteers in Gunnison Gorge NCA to learn about the importance of the Gunnison River. Kids rotated through a series of stations as they participated in fun and engaging hands-on lessons.

This event would not be possible without the dedicated efforts of the BLM Uncompahgre Field Office, our local school districts, many dedicated volunteers, and our engaged community. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a huge success!
