2018 Snow Drawing in search of volunteers for March 4 event

Bud Werner Memorial Library and The Nature Conservancy present the 2018 snow design, "Snow Stitching in Nature," from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 4 at the Carpenter Ranch in Hayden. Be the river, climb the mountain, create the clouds as the community creates a quilt-like scene in the snow that will be stitched together by the pattern of snowshoe steps on the hay meadow.

The Yampa Valley community is invited to join in creating this large, landscape-scale design. Volunteers meet at the Carpenter Ranch, where they will learn about the landscape that is the canvas, including inspired ideas and instruction for how to delve into your own contributions to the snow pattern before heading out to the hay meadow.

The plan is to walk the meadow for two hours, but volunteers can leave earlier if they need to or stay later if they want. Participants must bring their own snowshoes, snacks and water.

RSVPs are not mandatory but would help the organizers plan.
