RWEACT has received a $16,000 grant (we will match with $9,500 in Mineral County and Running Rivers and Trout Unlimited funds) .... for a restroom facility at Rio Grande Campground (this is one of three projects we requested funds for -- we have tentative approval under Colorado's Water Plan grant for the other two).
While we had requested funds for a two-seater facility, we are very excited to be able to install a one-seater. This popular site for fisherman has had no restroom facilities for several seasons.
Yay!! These funds are thanks to the San Luis Valley Conservation Connection Initiative which implements awesome projects for our region.
Thank you to Hinsdale County, our Chamber of Commerce, and our regional partnership for working towards improved tourism along the Silver Thread.
