Fraser / Art exhibit: Student posters speak for the river

As part of its educational outreach program, the Colorado River Headwaters chapter of Trout Unlimited has taken part in lectures and field trips with the science classes at East Grand Middle School, along with the Colorado Riparian Association and the Grand County Water Information Network. Students not only learned about river/water politics, but also about the biology of the rivers and aquatic habitat, and why it’s threatened.

As a piece of the educational project, the work of 13 science students representing what they learned, has been chosen as to be part of the River Awareness Poster Contest.

“They are good pieces of art but also have a really good meaning,” said Kirk Klancke, member of TU’s Colorado chapter. The posters will be on display at the Granby Library for the month of March and at the Fraser Valley Library during April. Patrons are invited to the libraries to vote for their favorite for a People’s Choice Award. First prize is awarded $100, second $75, third $50 and fourth place gets $25 and a chocolate fish.
