Carolyn Hackman Education Scholarship
CHLT's Carolyn Hackman Education Fund Scholarship is a scholarship for students in Grand County interested in increasing their knowledge of land conservation and management, and who wish to carry such knowledge and appreciation into their adult years.

This year we awarded scholarships to Cassidy Davis & Lillie Raegner at Middle Park High School, and Alejo Piniero & Jadyn Lemon at West Grand High School. These four exemplary students are each intending on studying topics related to conservation, natural resource management, agriculture and business, and taxidermy! We are so excited to be able to send them off to their next adventures with the strong support of their home community, to pursue their dreams and benefit the natural world!

  • Sheriff's Office Cautions Public About Water Risks: The Grand County Sheriff’s Office reminds the public that high-water flow in Colorado rivers, streams and lakes can often create dangerous conditions with swift-moving water or unexpected currents. In Grand County, our high mountain lakes and swift moving rivers contain cold water from snow melt. Entering water under these types of conditions can lead to hypothermia which will impair your body’s abilities. Swift moving water in rivers have an extra element of risk due to the volume and depth of water. The force of swift moving water may sweep you away in the water flow and limit your ability to swim or remove yourself safely from the water. If you plan to spend time recreating in water, make sure to educate yourself about water safety and know before you go, always a wear a personal flotation device and follow the American Red Cross’s Reach or Throw, Don’t Go guidance.
  • News Release

  • Due to the ample mountain snowpack and resulting snowmelt runoff in the Colorado River headwaters, all local reservoirs will have more than enough inflow to meet their storage needs. As a result, participants in the Coordinated Reservoir Operations (CROS) program are preparing to increase water releases to the Colorado River and its tributaries.
