The Town of Vail and Eagle River Water & Sanitation District will sponsor another installment in the Lunch with the Locals series at noon Tuesday, July 24 in the Grand View, on the third floor of the Lionshead Welcome Center. Attendees will enjoy a free lunch while listening to Kim Langmaid, founder of Walking Mountains Science Center and Vail Town Council member, describe the Town of Vail’s efforts to become the first certified Sustainable Destination in the United States and the first destination in the world to be certified to the Mountain IDEAL sustainable destination standard. The certification is the result of a multi-year partnership between the Town of Vail, Walking Mountains Science Center, Sustainable Travel International, Vail Resorts, the U.S. Forest Service, and others.
Experts from Eagle River Watershed Council, Walking Mountains Science Center and Town of Vail will be on hand to answer questions about what residents can do to help Restore the Gore. There will also be stickers and informational brochures given away to attendees.
