One of our outcomes from the economic recovery grant was to increase heritage-themed recreation.  You saw the recent celebration at the Del Norte Museum with work at the Summitville site.  The attached picture shows the interpretive signs that RWEACT partnered with Rio Grande County, CDPHE, Forest Service, EPA, and many others to design and install.

In Hinsdale County, we worked with the Ute Team and the Museum an interactive mining display and computer programming for a downloadable tourist feature that can be taken along the Alpine Loop to view information and historical photographs of each mine, as well as additional work at the Ute Ulay for interpretive signage (expected to be delivered this week; the bases are already in).

In Mineral County, we worked with the Chamber of Commerce and B4 Studio to update / replace signs along the Bachelor Loop.

Everything looks great!  Thanks for all your work!
