Fun times working on a story with @laura.yale and @patagonia , documenting the 40+ year efforts of the Crested Butte community and High Country Conservation Advocates + some radical red ladies who have been standing (and skinning) up for Mt Emmons (aka Red Lady Mountain) here in the snowy Colorado highlands. It’s a story of a small town standing up to big mining interests and developing a sustainable (and not coincidentally - fun ) model for activism in the face of extractive interests. Much of the success of this effort has revolved around activating the greater community (regardless of political differences) around an impactful and energetic multi-generational model of grassroots organizing to protect the watershed and natural resources of Red Lady Mountain and the surrounding ecosystems πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ͺ
